Perfect Drink® recipe

JM Amaretto Sour

This recipe comes from Jeffrey Morgenthaler of Clyde Common in Portland, Oregon. He claims this is the "best Amaretto Sour you've ever had in your life." Morgenthaler's contention is that classic Amaretto Sours are too sweet. His version has the addition of egg whites and cask strength bourbon to help balance out the sweet ingredients.
