Last summer I went out to lunch with my family and fell in love with a drink called Sweet Mama’s Punch. It’s a delicious cocktail with lots of fruity flavors and Amaretto. Before making that drink at home I had never bought Amaretto but I love it now. I set out to find more to make with it one week and decided I had to start with the classic Amaretto Sour. This is by no means the classic version but it uses elements of a classic amaretto sour and Sweet Mama’s Punch.
A few weeks ago I decided to make up a batch of these while we watched the playoffs. They were so good. I made a few drinks that day but this was our favorite. It’s a great party drink because both men and women love it, as well as people that don’t tend to drink very often. It’s sweet enough that everyone’s happy. You could make a pitcher up before your party and then everyone can just top off their glass with the 7 Up.
