"When I was a bartender people always commented that I made the best mixed drinks. One of my requested mixed drinks was my version of the Amaretto Sour. My “secret” was the addition of 7-Up which I think gave the drink a gentle fizz that broke up the syrupy sweetness of the drink. I usually made my own sour mix, which was nothing more then Country Time Lemonade (another “secret”) or would mix lemon juice with some granulated sugar -- and shake vigorously. You can also use store bought sour mix."

"Oh, this is my new favorite cocktail! Made this with homemade Recipe#94363. I didn't have sour mix, but that's a good thing. Used just lemon juice and that was helpful because it cut the sweetness of the 7up and the amaretto. Thanks for posting!"
"I served this at our neighborhood Christmas party -- everyone lived it!"
"YUM!! I loved this... thank you for sharing!"
"Delicious! I love the soda addition because it gives some of the citrus sour taste without so much burn-your-tongue sour like you get with the sour mix. Very nice taste. I didn't have orange slices and had to cheat with orange extract...just a drop. Thanks!"
"I love this. Any thing with Amaretto is yummy to me."
"This made the Christmas party a very fun event. The flavor was fabulous and it was a great twist with the 7-up in it."
"Wonderful! WONDERFUL! drink recipe cheryl. I made this tonight for an after dinner drink and this drink rocks. I kept everything the same but used 2 oz 7-up. I know I will make this again and again. Highly recommended. Thanks again cheryl for a great drink recipe. :)"
"A great twist on a delicious drink!!! I love amaretto ANYTHING and this is now my favorite drink. I do not drink very often but when I do, I love to indulge in these. They do not taste like they have any alcohol in them... which is probably why I like them soooo much! I used my own homemade Amaretto and sour mix and added just a tad more 7-Up. A great drink on a hot summer day! Thanks!"
"This was excellent! I usually order them when I am out, but I decided to be adventurous and try them at home. I was pleasantly surprised. I love the addition of 7-up. This drink has become a regular at my house. Thanks!"
"Very tasty. I only used 2 ounces Amaretto per drink and they went over very well. Thank you for sharing this keeper. Going on my favorites list."
"Yummy! This tastes great and is so easy to put together. Thanks so much for sharing - especially the part about using lemonade for sour mix."
"This drink was sooo good :) I love amaretto, and I made a bunch of these last night, got very happy lol! Made this for ZWT3, thanks."
"Very Yummy! I enjoyed the kick the Sprite gave to it. Added just a little bit of difference to this sour recipe. Thanks as usual for a lovely recipe NC!"
"Amaretto sours are my favorite, and the added 7-up was just the right touch! My boyfriend and I love them!"
"I actually set down my Goose bottle for an afternoon and enjoyed these. Dugan has only a few drinks a year and I was delighted and surprised when he joined me! He loves amaretto and had three. And was snoring in his La-Z-Boy an hour later and I had the house to myself. I wish he would drink more often."
"Very refreshing. Made big batch for cook out on a hot Texas summer night. Thanks for posting."
"Sis and I enjoyed these after a long horseback ride last night. Very good. thanks"
"Great drink! I did add a little more 7-up than called for...fabulous!"
"Thanks to this delightful drink, I am relaxed and ready to celebrate the Fourth of July. Great recipe. Made exactly as directed."
