New York Sour
This New York Sour recipe is perfect for fans of sour cocktails! It’s made with Sour Mix, whiskey, a twist of orange, and a layer of red wine that floats on top!
Servings: 1 drink
- 2 ounces bourbon whiskey
- 1½ ounces sour mix
- 1 ounce red wine
- 1 orange peel about 1 inch wide and 2 inches long
- 1 maraschino cherry
In a cocktail shaker filled halfway with ice, add the bourbon and sour mix. Cover and shake vigourously for 10 seconds.
Strain into an old fashioned glass filled 1/2 way with ice.
Pour red wine over the back of a spoon to create a layer on the top of the drink.
Take the orange peel and twist it over the top of the drink so that the mist from the peel goes over the drink.
Garnish with the orange peel and cherry.
- If you don't have sour mix on hand for this recipe you can use 1 ounce of simple syrup and a tablespoon of each fresh lime juice and fresh lemon juice. The sugar cannot be omitted since it has a higher density and it's what helps support the red wine floater. I highly recommend making my homemade sour mix.
- Rye whiskey may also be used for this recipe, but not Irish whiskey.
- Eggwhite Addition: Add all the ingredients, including the egg white, into a shaker WITHOUT ice (known as a “dry shake.”) Shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Then, fill halfway with ice and shake until chilled.
