Thirsty Thursday: Italian Sunset

Today I wanted to go with something pretty and I'm a sucker for layered drinks.


Italian Sunset

Fill a glass with crushed ice

Pour 2 oz. amaretto over the ice

Slowly add 3 oz. orange juice (if you pour too quickly, it'll mix and you'll lose your layers)

Slowly add 3 oz. club soda (see above note)

Add a dash of grenadine

Garnish with an orange slice and/or a cherry


  1. I have a friend coming over in an hour. I'm so making her stop to get the amaretto so we can make this.

  2. Awesome! It sounded sooooo good. Let me know how you like it :)


Tell me what you think
