The acidity of fresh lemon juice cuts through the sweetness, providing a refreshing zing. This cocktail is typically served in a whisky glass, underscored by the smooth texture created by the addition of egg white, which lends a frothy, creamy top layer. The addition of a few dashes of Angostura bitters contributes depth and complexity to the drink. Often garnished with a lemon slice and a maraschino cherry, the Amaretto Sour is both visually appealing and a beloved choice for those who prefer a sweeter cocktail with a sour edge.
