The Boy and His Poison: The New York Sour

I really like this drink. Really really like it. I may have liked this drink so much that over the course of the last weekend, I exhausted my entire bourbon reserves. I may also have severely dented a bottle of red-wine as a result of its deliciously irresistible final flourish.

For the uninitiated, this drink is to all intents and purposes like a conventional sour but with the addition of a delicious red wine float. Try it and you'll never look back.

You'll need:
  • 50ml of bourbon or rye
  • 25ml lemon juice
  • 25ml sugar syrup (or agave if you want to be lazy, you probably want to be lazy)
  • 25ml of red wine
Then shake it!
  1. Add the whisky, lemon juice and sugar syrup to a cocktail shaker.
  2. Add ice.
  3. Shake for 10 seconds.
  4. Strain into a tumbler.
  5. Slowly pour the red wine over a bar spoon into the glass, creating a layer of red wine that sits on top of the sour.
