Your festive tipple…
Amaretto sours are THE Christmas drink if you ask me, and even as Jordan and I were making these the other day in prep for this post, just the smell of the amaretto and lemon combination was taking me back to previous festivities! It’s such such a delicious drink to sip on in the evenings.
Obviously such a festive tipple needed a little fun update, and Jordan floated the idea of adding grapefruit in to the mix which sounded perfect. It gives it a zesty kick that shakes it up, making it a little tangier and perfect for sipping.
It’s a super easy drink, you can keep the ingredients on hand to make over Christmas. We had some simple syrup in the cupboard to make these, but usually we make our own by adding equal parts sugar and boiling water to a small bowl and stirring until the sugar dissolves. So easy!
It’s also worth mentioning that you can add as much grapefruit and simple syrup as you like, but we found this was the best ratio. Less syrup gave the grapefruit a bit more of a kick.
These are definitely our drinks of the moment, so fun and festive to whip up before popping on Elf. Will you be making my Grapefruit Amaretto Sours?
