New York Sour

A colourful and slightly spicy twist on the classic Whisky Sour



Makes one cocktail

  • 2 oz rye or bourbon whiskey
  • 1 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1 oz simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz fruity red wine (Malbec or Shiraz)


  1. Combine the whiskey, lemon juice and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Fill with ice, cover, and shake until the outside of the shaker is frosty (about 30 seconds)
  3. Strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice.
  4. Gently “float” the red wine onto the cocktail by pouring it over the back of a spoon held just above the drink’s surface.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
