An Amaretto Stone Sour is an easy twist on our popular Amaretto Sour. This quick drink, is delicious and light – perfect for amaretto lovers.
One of the most popular cocktails on Simple Joy is my Amaretto Sour. I’m sure it’s because it brings back memories of being 21 and not having a care in the world. Or maybe it is because it is made with my homemade Sweet and Sour Mix – the secret ingredient to so many great cocktails.
The Amaretto Stone Sour is an easy twist on that great popular cocktail. In this drink, we are swapping the lemon lime soda for some orange juice. It is a fruity delicious cocktail that you are going to want to come back to over and over.

If you are an Amaretto lover like me, you might want to consider making your own. Not only is it really easy to make, Homemade Amaretto makes such a great gift. I highly suggest using Kirkland vodka to make it. It is an inexpensive option without sacrificing taste and quality.
Homemade Sweet and Sour Mix
You also may want to make my homemade sweet and sour mix for this recipe. It is the secret ingredient in my Margarita Recipe that makes it a home run. It is easy to make, and freezes very well. I like to freeze it in one ounce portions in an ice cube tray so that I can pull some out for a single cocktail.
