Amaretto Sour

Main Spirit Whiskey - Bourbon
Difficulty Medium
Technique Dry Shake

The Amaretto Sour has gotten a bit of a bad rep over the years, so Jeffrey Morgenthaler, the bar manager of Clyde Common in Portland embarked on a project to make a better version. He boosted the alcoholic strength by mixing in nearly a full ounce of overproof Bourbon, replaced the sour mix with real Lemon Juice and added an Egg White.


  • 1.5 oz. 45ml Amaretto
  • 0.75 oz. 23ml Bourbon
  • 1 oz. 30ml Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp Simple Syrup
  • 1 1 Egg White
Display: oz. ml.


Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake without ice to integrate. Add ice and shake until chilled. Strain over fresh ice in an old-fashioned glass.
