Cocktail of the Month: Difference Amaretto Sour

This month, let’s celebrate the sweet, almond-flavoured Italian liqueur with origins dating all the way back to the 16th century. Amaretto is often paired with coffee, so we asked our good friend Dan Fellows, two-time Coffee in Good Spirits World Champion, to create Difference Amaretto Sour, a new amaretto cocktail recipe showcasing those two key ingredients.
