The New York Sour

The New York Sour

We came across a picture of this drink in an issue of Plate Magazine and it looked so inviting that we had to make a batch and see if it tasted as good as it looked. And, so it does. It has a sweet and sour kick and the red wine adds an interesting note in addition to providing it's attractive two-tone look. Some of the recipes we've found include the orange juice and some don't but we think the drink is too sour without it. Almost all the recipes, however, call for 1/2 oz. less whiskey than we used but we'll leave that up to you. Cheers!

Per Serving:
2 1/2 oz. Whiskey
3/4 oz. Lemon juice
1/4 oz. Orange juice
3/4 oz. Simple syrup
1/2 oz. Red wine

Combine all the ingredients except the wine and shake over ice. Pour into a cocktail glass and float the red wine on top.


We'd love to hear from you!
