Sinless New York Sour Recipe
Sour cocktails remain popular for good reason... they're delicious.
The New York Sour doesn't immediately sound like a winner. After all, the ingredients don't sound like they would go together. But somehow... magically, they DO.
You've heard of a Whiskey Sour, yes? Well, the New York Sour simply adds a floater of red wine on top. Yes. RED WINE. See what we mean?
This clever and ecclectic combination was originally known as the Continental Sour, and according to Liquor.com, may have originated in Chicago. Ultimately, it was New York that claimed this beverage as its own.
This retro cocktail has a lot going on - spice, sour, sweet, fruit - and just to be extra... a little egg white. (You can leave the egg white out, but you'll lose the silkiness that comes along with it.) You really have to try it to understand how these ingredients come together. Here's how...
INGREDIENTS - What you Need
- 2 oz Bourbon
- 1 oz Miss Mary's Sugar Free Sinless Simple Syrup
- 1 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
- 1/2 oz Dry Red Wine
- Optional: 1 egg white
INSTRUCTIONS - How to Make
Use your cocktail shaker to combine the bourbon, simple syrup, lemon juice and egg white (if including) with ice and shake well. Strain into a rocks glass with a single, XL ice cube. To add the red wine as a floater, pour it slowly over a spoon so it doesn't break the surface tension.
