The New York Sour Cocktail

Count on The City That Never Sleeps to put a scrumptious twist on a classic cocktail - meet The New York Sour, a golden whiskey sour that's topped with fruity red wine, serving up satisfaction in every sip.

Bite Me Bit

"One belongs to New York instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years."

-Tom Wolfe


2oz Rye Whiskey
1oz simple syrup
1oz fresh lemon juice
Fruity Red Wine (Shiraz) to top

½ lemon slice, for garnish


Using a cocktail shaker filled halfway with ice, combine rye, simple syrup and lemon juice. Pour into a glass filled with ice and gently top up with red wine. It’s easiest to pour the wine over a spoon so it will sit on top.
