I discovered last night that sweet and sour cocktail mix is nothing more than simple syrup and citrus juice.
Are you all rolling your eyes at me? Seriously, I don’t know what I thought was in there, but I certainly didn’t realize it was so easy. Homemade sweet and sour mix! In seconds!
I decided to celebrate this discovery with a cocktail!
Key lime amaretto sour
- 1 1/2 Tbsp. key lime juice
- 2 Tbsp. simple syrup
- 3 Tbsp. amaretto liqueur
- Stir together and enjoy!
Voila! The key lime amaretto sour.
I didn’t know that either… thanks – now I don’t have to wait for my husband to run to the store if I want a cocktail.
Oh yummy! I love amaretto sours, but this makes it so much better with key lime! Great discovery!
Nice, sours of all stripes are the bomb. Heh, I hadn’t realized that was all sour mix was either.
Y’all are making me feel better. I was sure I was the last person on the planet to figure this out. Sometimes being too lazy to go to the store but not too lazy to google pays off. 😉
It’s a gorgeous and simple drink. Love it, especially made from scratch like this! I hate those awful sour mixes that so many ppl buy in the store….
Oh yum! I’d take one of those!
