Servings 1 person


  • Cocktail Shaker


  • 2 oz amaretto
  • 1 oz citrus juice (I mixed lemon and orange)
  • 1 dash bitters
  • 1 tbsp aquafaba
  • 1 oz simple syrup (Optional) (Equal parts sugar and water)
  • cherry and orange for garnish


  • Put all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake one minute.
  • Strain, pour into a cocktail glass, (the aquafaba will rise to the surface and form a beautiful, foamy head) and garnish with cherry and orange. (I use Filthy Foods BlackCherries and organic orange peel.) 
  • Bottoms up!
