- 45 ml (1 1/2 oz.) almond liqueur
- 15 ml (1/2 oz.) fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp. granulated sugar
- Sugar for glass
- Ice cubes
- A half lime slice
Rim an old-fashioned glass with granulated sugar.
Combine the almond liqueur, lemon juice and granulated sugar in a shaker filled with ice cubes.
Shake vigorously 8 to 10 seconds.
Strain into an old-fashioned glass containing a few ice cubes using an ice strainer.
Garnish with half lime slice.
For something a little different, try using 30 ml (1 oz.) of Rose’s Lime Cordial instead of the lemon juice and sugar.

A member of the sour family, the Amaretto Sour is famed for its sweet and sour taste, which is enhanced with a touch of almond. Sours made their debut in The Bartender's Guide, the world’s first-ever cocktail book. Published in 1862, this handbook was written by Jerry Thomas, who is considered the father of the cocktail.
