Happy Hour: New York Sour
It could definitely be fun...but I decided against it anyway.
Sometimes I like to go to the gym at night and I don't think I should be lifting weights while intoxicated.
It basically came down to a logistics issue.
Right now, I try to experiment with mixology at least 1x a week. This week's experiment was very successful. Easy to drink, but strong and very pretty with the red wine float.
NEW YORK SOUR
2 oz. rye whiskey
1 oz. lemon juice
1 oz. simple syrup
1/4 oz. red wine
lemon slice, for garnish
1. Fill a rocks glass with ice.
2. Pour in whiskey, lemon juice and simple syrup. Stir to combine.
3. Place a spoon over the top of the drink then slowly pour the wine over the back of the spoon to create a float. Garnish with lemon slice.
