My home bar is out of three key ingredients: vodka, gin, and St. Germain. So as an experiment, I'm going to see how long we can go before restocking those things. (I'm also getting perilously low on wine, but that's another matter.)
First up on the don't-spend-money-on-booze-until-it's-absolutely-necessary train: the amaretto sour.
Not something I'll drink on a regular basis, but my sister-in-law loves them. It's 2 ounces of amaretto to 1 ounce of fresh lemon juice. Shake with ice and serve. Simple enough, but amaretto is really sweet. If you're not into sweet drinks, you'll want to up the percentage of lemon juice.
