this is seriously amazing. i made some revisions (no confectioners' sugar and not mixing the amaretto in until the drink was poured) but otherwise AWESOME!

This doesn't scale down well - I was hardly able to taste the alcohol. Overpowered by the sweet and sour mix. Thanks for letting me try.

Very good, but very sweet. Try salting the rim, it adds a bit of contrast to the sweet.

I served this recipe at our Bunco group last week and the ladies loved it. Its not too sweet or tart.

I, too, scaled it down to 1 and it scaled perfectly, altho, I tend to eyeball amounts & probably erred a little on the plus size. (For the record, the division scales down to 1.25 oz each of amaretto & tequila & half an oz of orange liqueur (I used Grand Marnier. Will try it with Triple Sec next time) I'm not sure with an almost 1:1 ratio of s&s to alcohol, anyone cannot taste the alcohol.). I also used granulated sugar instead of confectioners. I like texture/sweetness level better.

I really liked this drink! Scaled it down to one serving and added a little extra crushed ice. I will make this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
