Ameretto Sour

A warming winter variation on the sour for todays cocktail. The warming notes of Ameretto were motst appreciated by my wife.


Shot in my frost garden around lunch time today the sun was as high as it gets at this time of year and not a cloud to be seen. My kids swing made a great resting place for the drink.
