Let’s talk peach butter.
Before you get turned off by the idea of “butter” in your cocktail, let’s set things straight. There is no dairy in this cocktail.
Peach butter is a reduced mixture of fresh peaches, spices, and sugar — essentially a deliciously spiced, smooth peach jam.

Where To Get Peach Butter
Traditionally, amaretto sours are made with simple syrup. But peach butter gives this drink a deeper flavor — and a sophisticated flair.
I used Karlee’s recipe – Olive & Artisan: End of Summer Peach Butter. If you don’t have the time to make homemade peach butter, you can see if your local grocery store has any available (or just buy it online). Trader Joe’s always has a good peach butter!
