Cocktail Hour: The New York Sour

Cheers, friends!🍹


Besides drinking whiskey neat, I also fancy myself a weekend mixologist. From time to time, I'll be sharing my favorite cocktail recipes. Today, I'll be talking about one of my favorite whiskey cocktails: the New York Sour! 🗽🍷


Imagine sipping on a perfectly balanced blend of whiskey, lemon juice, simple syrup, and a delightful splash of red wine. It's like a classic whiskey sour with a sophisticated twist! 🔀


The best part? Making this cocktail is as relaxing as enjoying it. All you need is a shaker, some ice, and a few simple ingredients. No fancy mixology skills required!


Here's a quick recipe to get you started:



- 2 oz whiskey (bourbon or rye; I prefer rye in mine)

- 1 oz fresh lemon juice

- 1/2 oz simple syrup or my preference, Demerara syrup

- ½ oz red wine (a fruity one works best)



1. Fill a shaker with ice cubes.

2. Add whiskey, lemon juice, and simple syrup to the shaker.

3. Shake it up with a relaxed rhythm, like you're dancing to your favorite tune. 🎶💃

4. Strain the mixture into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice.

5. Now, here comes the fun part: gently and slowly pour the red wine over the back of a spoon, allowing it to float on top of the cocktail. It creates a beautiful layered effect!

6. Take a moment to admire your masterpiece, then give it a gentle stir to blend the flavors.

7. Sip, savor, and let the New York Sour transport you to the bustling streets of the Big Apple.


Remember, this cocktail is all about relaxation and enjoyment. So, take your time, unwind, and let the flavors whisk you away to a state of pure bliss.


If you're feeling adventurous, feel free to experiment with different whiskies or even try a white wine float instead of red. You can also add an egg white. The possibilities are endless!


So, my friends, grab your shakers, put on some music, and let's raise a glass to the New York Sour!
