DIY His & Hers Amaretto Sours with Pink Maraschino Cherries!
1. What You'll Need - The Hard Stuff: We LOVE Disaronno. The classic and original Italian liquor is so tasty and when we found this limited edition Versace bottle of Disaronno, we couldn't resist. If you can't get Disarrono, go for an Amaretto Almond Liquor.
2. Next Ingredient... For the mixer, you'll need Sweet & Sour Mix. Stick to fresh lemons (if you like it really tart) or a sweet & sour mix made with Premium Lemon Juice. If it's lime or if the mix is too sweet, it will make the drink too sweet.
3. Garnish with Pink or Red Maraschino Cherries - We were so excited when we spotted 'Tickled Pink Maraschino' Cherries at Whole Foods made by Tillen Farms. They're 100% natural & Gluten Free too. Who Knew? More importantly they're SO cute and would look great in a Shirley Temple or on top of a ice-cream sundae.
Calorie Saving Trick - Amaretto Sours aren't exactly Skinny Girl Margaritas, but they're SO good. We used these mini-cocktail glasses (about double the size of a shooter glass) and plenty of ice. This drink isn't good unless it's chilled. Smaller glasses, plus using real lemons instead of the Sweet & Sour mix can definitely make them more calorie friendly!
Don't you just love the Pink cherries!? We can definitely clear a spot on our bar cart for these. Cheers to the 2016 Awards Season! PS - Our 'Flash Sale' is going on now if you need to stock up on our anti-aging luxury satin pillow cases. Perfect for an Oscar night slumber party!
