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.
