For a gal who doesn’t typically like whiskey, why in the world would I decide to post about a whiskey drink? Crazy, right?
Some way, some how I discovered the New York Sour and I’m so thankful I did. I don’t make this drink very often, but when I do, I sure do love it. It involves whiskey, lemon, simple syrup and wine. It’s sweet, slightly sour, and doesn’t have an overwhelming whiskey taste (because of the red wine and lemon).
2 oz Whiskey (I used TX Whiskey)
1 oz Simple syrup
1 oz Lemon juice
.5 oz Red wine (I used Merlot)
1. Add the whiskey, simple syrup and lemon juice into a shaker and fill with ice.
2. Shake well and strain into a cocktail/drink glass. (I used my GORG Birch Lane glasses)
3. Carefully pour the wine over the back of a spoon so it floats on top of the drink. This part it is rather difficult, so you might want to watch this helpful YouTube video to get it right.
