An Amaretto stone sour cocktail contains equal parts Amaretto (an almond-flavored Italian liqueur), sour mix and orange juice for a tangy-yet-sweet dessert cocktail. You can serve this drink year round with meals or rich desserts, with or without ice. It is typically served in a highball glass, but if you don’t use ice you can serve it in a cocktail glass.

Things You'll Need

Pour ice into a highball glass. The ice should fill the glass three-quarters of the way to the top.

Pour 2 ounces of Amaretto into the highball glass. Amaretto adds the sweetness to this dessert cocktail so it doesn’t taste too sour, so it’s important to get this measurement correct.

Pour 2 ounces of sour mix into the highball glass with the Amaretto.

Add 2 ounces of orange juice to the glass and stir the contents with a cocktail stirrer for five seconds.

Garnish the drink with a cherry and serve immediately on a cocktail napkin or coaster.

To serve the drink in a cocktail glass, use a cocktail strainer to strain the contents from the highball glass into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry and serve immediately on a cocktail napkin or coaster.
