This was really a delicious drink. The amaretto really adds a nice touch, and the sweet & sour mix rounds out the total flavor boost for this cocktail. I will definitely be making this often. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Vallie. Made for Spring 2010 Pick-A-Chef.

Terrific! I love amaretto and this is a drink I often order out but never make at home - well now I will! The extra splash of rum is a nice touch. This drink is sweet and smooth - one of my favorites - thanks for sharing!
