New York Whiskey Sour… humm what exactly is that?? 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.
Are you intrigued yet?
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.
