New York Sour


Like a whiskey sour and a great sangria all in one, this classic drink makes you want to dash off to the Big Apple. OK, actually it just makes us wish the next season of Boardwalk Empire would come around sooner. The characters in that prohibition-era show always order the best drinks.

New York Sour

  • 2 oz rye or bourbon
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 1 tsp simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz red wine

Mix the liquor, juice and simple syrup in a shaker filled with ice. Strain into a tumbler. Pour the wine over the back of a spoon onto the cocktail to float.

    Had to re-post this recipe. Kind of remind me of Sangria without the fruit and not stirred. Gonna give this a try perhaps this weekend.
