Bourbon Amaretto Sour Cocktail

My Bourbon Amaretto Sour Cocktail recipe is a riff off the Amaretto Sour. I added bourbon and black walnut bitters to the mix for a smooth nutty cocktail garnished with nutmeg.

How to Make a Bourbon Amaretto Sour

Prep all ingredients:

  • Squeeze fresh lemon juice. 
  • Separate yolk from the egg white.

First, fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Next, add in all the ingredients except the nutmeg. Save that for the garnish. Shake then strain into a coupe glass
