New York Sour
Recipe courtesy of Julie Reiner from her book with Kaitlyn Goalen "The Craft Cocktail Party, Delicious Drinks for Every Occasion."
- 2 oz Old Overholt Rye Whiskey
- 3/4 oz lemon juice
- 1/4 oz orange juice
- 3/4 oz simple syrup
- 1/2 oz medium-bodied red wine
- Shake the rye, lemon juice, orange juice, and simple syrup with ice until chilled.
- Strain into a coupe and top with the wine.
- The red wine should be added delicately to ensure that it floats above the whiskey sour underneath.
- The tannins in the wine dry out the cocktail with each sip, making for a beautifully layered drink.
- Measure the wine in your jigger and slowly pour it onto the back of a bar spoon positioned over the surface of the drink to apply it to the top of the cocktail.
