The Perfect Vegan Amaretto Sour with Aquafaba

The Perfect Vegan Amaretto Sour with Aquafaba

Adding aquafaba to the mix makes this sweet and sour cocktail lighter and adds the frothy layer you’d expect from a traditional amaretto sour.

Aquafaba replaces the egg whites typically used in this tangy, classic cocktail in this Like A Vegan blogger’s recipe. This bright and refreshing drink is a grown-up version of a lemonade with a touch of refinement and a touch of depth from the bitters.

What you need:

¼ cup vegan-friendly amaretto
¼ cup lemon juice
3 teaspoons simple syrup
2 tablespoons aquafaba
½ teaspoon bitters
½ cup ice
Maraschino cherries, for garnish
Lemon rind, for garnish

What you do:

  1. Into a cocktail shaker, add amaretto, lemon juice, simple syrup, aquafaba, bitters, and ice. Shake vigorously for at least a minute or two so that aquafaba produces foam.
  2. Strain into a glass and serve immediately with a garnish of lemon rind and a cherry.
