drink up :: new york sour

Friends! It’s Friday night. Cheers?

I’m currently drinking some red wine, but often I like to make things a bit more spicy. And you know who else fancies a fancy drink? My mom. In recent years, she’s upped her cocktail game and makes a mean one herself.

Case in point: the New York Sour.

Deb’s New York Sour

2oz bourbon
1oz lemon juice
½-1oz simple syrup
½-1oz fruity red wine (such as Malbec or Shiraz)
regular ice cubes + large ice cubes for each drink

1. Shake bourbon, lemon juice, simple syrup and ice cubes in a cocktail shaker (or jar!).

2. Pour over large ice cube.

3. Slowly pour red wine onto other ingredients in the glass, using a spoon as a barrier to slow the flow and to keep the wine at the top.
