New York Sour

There's something kind of "holiday" about the New York Sour. It's the only sour with red wine, and it is rich and warming on cold nights. It is not a bourbon drink, so blended whiskey is required. I have my go-to Black Velvet Special Reserve for these occasions. Too bad it is hard to find on the East Coast.
  • 2 oz. blended whiskey (Black Velvet Special Reserve used)
  • 1 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar syrup
  • 1 tbsp. dry red wine
Combine all ingredients except wine in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a sour glass (lowball used) and top with red wine.
