New York Sour

Sours, everybody loves sours! What makes this sour so special and unique you may ask? Well how about the fact that this one uses wine? Now for anyone that knows me, I’m not a fan red wine but I can say wow, does it work well with this drink! When we made this drink, I was a bit turned off by the idea of using red wine on a cocktail but the strong flavor is a perfect match to the whiskey. Its a great drink that goes down very easy, be warned, you won’t feel it!

What you'll need:

  • 1.5 oz. Tennessee Whiskey
  • 1 oz. Lemon Juice
  • ½ oz. Red Wine
  • 1 oz. Simple Syrup
  • Lime Slice (garnish)


This is a very straightforward drink until the last step. To start, pour all your ingredients except the wine into the shaker and shake. Serve over ice and use the lime wedge as garnish.

  1. Pour ingredients except for the wine into the shaker
  2. Shake 
  3. Serve into your glass
  4. Pour the wine, on the back of a spoon to layer the drink
  5. Add the garnish
  6. Enjoy!
