Tasting notes

Our Amaretto Sour is all about balance and timeless charm. Inhale the aroma of almonds, before your first sip reveals a delightful fusion of smooth amaretto sweetness and a refreshing kick of lemon juice. Shake it well to give you a creamy texture on the tongue, while the almond essence that lingers on your palate will leave you craving another sip. This classic drink is a testament to the magic of mixology, combining sweet and sour in perfect harmony. But be warned: you might be the envy of the party as you savour every sip with an irresistible smirk. Cheers to that!

The story behind the drink

The Amaretto Sour cocktail has a rich history dating back to the seventies – first introduced to the public in the US by the importer of Amaretto di Saronno (now known as Disaronno) during a resurgence of Italian spirits and liqueurs. It became a big hit in the 1980s, with variants being created by various bartenders, but the classic sweet and sour combination remains the undisputed favourite – a staple on all good cocktail menus.

The ingredients

Our Amaretto Sour is made with Disaronno Originale – an amber-coloured liqueur with a characteristic almond taste, although it does not actually contain almonds. It is produced in Saronno, in the Lombardy region, and sold worldwide. According to the company, the liqueur is an infusion of apricot kernel oil with "absolute alcohol, burnt sugar, and the pure essence of seventeen selected herbs and fruits". To complete the drink we add fresh lemon juice.
