Hit Summer with a smile on your face and Sweet & Sour Amaretto orange Cocktail in your hands – Pure sunshine in a glass!
Amaretto is a sweet almond-flavored Italian liqueur, a great drink on its own, even better when mixed with other ingredients. Surprisingly enough, in the original version the almond flavour doesn’t come from almonds as you would guess, but rather from apricot kernels. The store-bought version is very sweet, but if you want a stronger bitter-sweet real almond flavour, you can venture into DIY Amaretto – definitely on my to-do list.
This summer cocktail is incredibly easy to make, all you need is 3 ingredients only: Amaretto, fresh orange juice and sour mix. Sour mix is a simple liquid made with lime & lemon juice, water and sugar. It’s available to buy at most grocery stores, but you’re better off making your own sour mix. It takes literally 10 mins, keeps fresh in the fridge for up to 2 weeks and tastes infinitely better.
This sweet & sour amaretto orange cocktail is one of my favourite summer drinks to serve when I host a party or bbq. The sweet & tangy flavour combo makes a refreshing incredibly delicious drink perfect to beat the heat!
