Amaretto Sour Cocktail
Seeking something sweet during the disco era, young Americans made the Amaretto Sour a very popular cocktail. Unfortunately, during the same time period, fresh ingredients had been replaced by sour mix and other artificial flavorings. These days, there is no excuse for not using fresh and high quality ingredients, like Luxardo Amaretto Liqueur (http://bit.ly/luxardo_amaretto). If you do, as Francesco Lafranconi does here, you can master the Amaretto Sour!
