History

The Amaretto Sour cocktail is part, as its name suggests, of the "sours" family introduced by Jerry Thomas in 1862 and which consists of mixing a spirit with lemon and sugar, making sour and sweet cocktails at the same time. As for the famous Italian liqueur Amaretto, it was created in 1851 and only began to be imported into the United States around 1960. It is therefore very difficult to find who first had the idea of making Amaretto "sour". ".
