About our Coffee Amaretto Sour
Here's how to make a real amaretto sour like its creator, Jerry Thomas, but with a twist. Patrice found inspiration for the coffee amaretto sour in two things he particularly loves: coffee and Italian amaretti cookies. You know what they say; life is too short so why not mix these two exquisite flavors together? Amaretto is also a great alternative to traditional powdered sugar to sweeten your coffee during the holidays. The secret to making this cocktail to perfection? Shake well!
