If you’re in search of a boozy beverage that’s super refreshing, let this be it. Amaretto sours are typically made with three ingredients: Amaretto liqueur, simple syrup, and lemon juice (plus an optional orange slice and cherry garnish). They’re a low-ABV cocktail made for sweet drink devotees. For those in search of something with less sugar and a bit more kick, meet the sparkling Amaretto sour. We cut back on the sweet almond-flavored liqueur and simple syrup and added a splash of dry Prosecco instead. It’s sweet-tart flavor pairs perfectly with the light effervescence from the sparkling wine.
