Amaretto Sours

Mojitos are dead to me. I have a new favourite cocktail - the Amaretto Sour! If you too a fan of all things almond flavoured then this could be the one for you too. The flavours are strong and simple - the sweet almond taste of amaretto is cut through with fresh lemon juice. The cherry adds a cute pop of colour. Here's how you make it:

For 1 x cocktail you will need:

2 Measures Amaretto
1 1/2 Measure freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 Measure sugar syrup
1 Cocktail cherry (compulsory)
1 Twist of lemon (optional)
1 Cocktail Shaker (or jam jar!)

Shake up the amaretto and lemon juice with a few ice cubes. Strain into a short glass over fresh ice and garnish with the cherry and lemon twist.

This drink would be perfect to take to a New Years Eve party since the ingredients and apparatus required are minimal. On the other hand I've found that it's also perfect for drinking whilst sitting on the sofa working ones way through the West Wing box set. This is a special pastime unique to the days in between Christmas and New Years Eve.

Speaking of New, Stone Cold Comfort has a new look. You like? I do.
