Use the recipe for vodka and soda. Just add sliced strawberries and garnish with mint leaves.

Hi JULABELLE, I would love to have your recipe for the Amaretto Soda. Sounds wonderful.

My favorite summer cocktail is an amaretto soda. Most people have never heard of it and give me a funny look. It tastes like a cream soda, which is nummy. Calories aren't the best (180+), but it is really good.

Would be nice if the recipe were under the photo in the slide rather than having to go to a whole bunch of links....
