A stroll down the liquor store aisle lead to remembrances of the drink of my 20’s – Amaretto Sour. A bottle of Disarrono, a bag of lemons, and a well stocked bar of mixers later and my 40 year old self had amped things up a bit. The following cocktail is the perfect balance of refreshing and sweet. While not a magical motivator, it at least soothes the pain of mental barriers that often accompany writing.
- 1½ oz Disaronno Amaretto
- 1½ oz Bourbon – we used Bulleit
- juice of ½ small lemon (1/2 oz.)
- Angostura bitters – 2 good shakes
- 2 ice cubes
- Stir and enjoy.
