Comment:

As the name suggests, this drink is dominated by amaretto, with lemon juice providing the sour balancing element and a slug of bourbon giving backbone.

Origin:

Adapted from a drink created in 2012 by Jeffrey Morgenthaler in Oregon, USA. Jeffrey's original formula called for 3/4 shot cask-strength bourbon and additionally used 1 spoon of sugar syrup.
