Key lime amaretto sour

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


  1. Stir together and enjoy!

Voila! The key lime amaretto sour.

  1. 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.

  2. 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….
