Pick your Poison: Disaronno Sour

A recipe for a disaronno sour

As I am partaking in Sugar Free February at the moment for Cancer Research UK, this drink is strictly off limits for me until the 1st of March.


That doesn’t, however, stop me from planning ahead and I can tell you all now, as soon as February is over, this will be the first cocktail to pass my lips.

I had a wonderful time making cocktails the other evening for a lovely friends birthday (it was such a giggle, lots of vigorous wrist action going on!) and this was one of the cocktails we made. I have to admit, apart from Gin, Disaronno is one of my favourite things to drink. I am a massive fan of marzipan and all things almond flavoured.

This drink is sour, with a hint of sweetness, and very refreshing. Perfect anytime of year and really easy to make.

If you have more of a preference for sour tastes than sweet, add a dash more lemon juice. Cocktail making is very much trial and error and what one person likes, another may not so do have a play about with the quantities I suggest.

So, without further ado, here is the recipe for a Disaronno Sour.

    This one is my absolute favourite. Everything tastes better with amaretto! We do this dessert at the restaurant; amaretto and cream cheese, deep fried in puff pastry, rolled in sugar and topped with chocolate and cherries. So. Stinkin. Good! Good luck with your sugar free February! You’re a stronger girl than I!
