Watch how to make an amaretto sour with our step-by-step video:



  • STEP 1

    Put the amaretto, lemon juice, egg white and 4 tsp of the cherry syrup into a blender (you can also do this in a large cocktail shaker, you will just need to shake it very hard without adding any ice).

  • STEP 2

    Whizz up the mixture a few times at a high speed until it is pale and starting to increase in volume. If your blender is suitable for use with ice, add a few handfuls and pulse just twice more to chill the mixture. Alternatively, just stir in the ice until the outside of the jug feels cold.

  • STEP 3

    Pour into glasses and garnish with cherries to serve.
