Prosecco lends festive sparkle to this almondy tipple
2 shots amaretto
1 shot lemon juice
½ shot sugar syrup (see below)
Sliced lemon and cocktail cherries, to serve
1. To make sugar syrup, combine equal volumes of water and sugar (a cup of each, say) in a saucepan, heat gently till the sugar dissolves, leave to cool and store in a bottle or jar.
2. Pile a glass with ice and then pour in the amaretto, lemon juice and syrup before topping with the prosecco. Mix carefully with a spoon and serve with a slice of lemon and a cherry.
