How To Make a Classic Amaretto Sour

Rating: 3.5 stars 322
We’ve all been there: You buy a large quantity of an ingredient for one recipe, and then you’re stuck not knowing what to do with the rest of it. A common culprit? Amaretto liqueur, which is often used in almond-flavored butter cookies. But after you’ve added one tablespoon to the batter, you’re left with a bottle full of almond-flavored liqueur. Well, now’s the time to try your hand at a new cocktail: a deliciously refreshing Amaretto sour. The “sour” element comes from two types of citrus, freshly-squeezed lemon juice and a slice of orange. Garnish with a cherry for a pretty presentation.Watch the video above to find out how to make an Amaretto sour, and read on for the easy recipe instructions and five ingredients.

Break and Bake Kitchen Sink Cookies

There are a lot of really great things going on in this recipe. First off, you’ve got a rich cookie dough, which includes 2 extra egg yolks for chewy goodness. Then, there are the mix-ins: oats, and a mixture of whatever you’ve got lying around. The idea is that almost anything works. And lastly, this recipe gives you the instructions to make four batches of your own break-and-bake cookies. It’s a dangerous thing to have in your freezer, but it’s a fact that life is at least 150% better when you have cookie dough ready to bake off.

Perfect Jasmine Rice

Rating: 3.5 stars 1166
Cooking jasmine rice is one of those seemingly simple tasks that is actually pretty difficult to master, even for some professional cooks. But once you master the technique, you’ll be steaming to perfection in no time. One of the big problems people encounter is rice stuck to the bottom of the pot. This is actually a sign that you’ve nailed the jasmine rice-to-water ratio. To release it, all you have to do is remove the pot from the stove, and let it rest, covered, for 5 minutes. The starchy grains will magically release from the bottom for a perfectly cooked batch of jasmine rice.

Mai Tai
Rating: 3.5 stars

This pretty Mai Tai cocktail is fruity and refreshing. If you’re wondering how to make a Mai Tai (or what’s in a Mai Tai), you’ve come to the right place. Each one of the Mai Tai ingredients adds depth and flavor to the tropical cocktail. The tart lime juice balances the sweet pineapple juice and orgeat syrup (a sweet almond flavored syrup) offers a base note to anchor the flavors together. Feel free to replace the orgeat with simple syrup and a drop of almond extract, which will mimic the almond undertones. Though we call for dark rum in the recipe, we tested it with white rum and it was just as delicious. Make this easy Mai Tai recipe while you’re relaxing on the beach—or if you just want to pretend you are.
