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.
- Grate fresh nutmeg.
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.
The egg white gives the cocktail that lacy foam top.
