Step By Step  

A big city twist on the classic whiskey sour cocktail.

As prepared by Buns in my Oven,

A sweet red wine float adds a unique New York take on the traditional Whiskey Sour. 

Let’s face it.

Everything from New York is cooler than everything not from New York. 

Except for pizza. Chicago wins at pizza and that’s that. No argument. Hands down. Deep dish all the way.

But, otherwise? New York probably has the hippest stuff. I mean, Buffalo wings came from there, so New York is cool by default. 

Today though, we’re not talking about pizza or Buffalo wings. Today we’re gettin’ our drank on. 

The New York Sour... it’s the cool cousin of the not-quite-as-hip-as-it-could-be Whiskey Sour. You ready for this? 

We’re following a recipe from Epicurious for this one.

 

The New York Sour Cocktail

You’ll need all the usual stuff for a Whiskey Sour, plus some sweet red wine. Because what isn’t improved with a little red wine?

If you have a cocktail shaker, you’re more awesome than me. If you don’t, just grab a couple of glasses, fill with ice, and then start pouring in your ingredients. First comes whiskey.

Then a little lemon juice.

And then add in some simple syrup. That’s just one part water heated with one part sugar until the sugar dissolves. Easy peasy.

Shake ‘er up.

Add some fresh ice to a rocks glass and pour in the good stuff.

Now, grab a spoon, flip it upside down, and gently pour the red wine over it. This should create a beautiful layered look. You might be able to pull this off without making a mess, but my husband couldn’t. Whatevs.
