30 Days, Day 21

A recipe.

Let's not push this cooking shit, mkay? I'm doing the best I can in that arena. I've thus far neglected to tell the tales of my kitchen failures. I'll get to them, rest assured. 

How about I share a recipe that may or may not have been a contributing factor in one or more embarrassing incidents in my college days. And possibly this past summer. And last month. 

A Positively Fantastic Amaretto Sour

3 oz. Amaretto
1.5 oz. sweet and sour mix 
cherry grenadine
bar sugar or granulated sugar
orange and lemon slices 
maraschino cherries 
ice

Rub the rim of your glass with a lemon slice, and dip it in bar sugar until the rim is well frosted.

Shake amaretto and sweet & sour mix in a shaker with ice, then pour into a chilled glass.

Add a splash of cherry grenadine.

Garnish with an orange or lemon slice and maraschino cherry.

Drink up!!!


Tomorrow, a website.

Strangely enough, last night I was actually sitting here thinking, "I haven't had an amaretto sour in years. I should make one." and, poof, here you are with the recipe for a *positively fantastic* one. What are the chances?? Thank you!

My God that sounds good. Can you make it without liquor? No, probably not, huh?

Hey but the alcohol probably evaporates when you shake it, right?
