New York Sour

Friday night drinks have become a ritual in our household. Weeknights are busy with work, school and gym but Friday night is special as we are all relaxed and we get together around the island in the kitchen. This one was my son’s creation. Looks decadent and tastes amazing.

60ml rye whiskey

½ teaspoon triple sec or Cointreau

15ml simple syrup

30ml lemon juice

Egg white

Red wine (Shiraz/Malbec/Bordeaux

Soda water (optional)


Put whiskey, triple sec, simple syrup, lemon juice and egg white in a shaker. Shake without ice to mix ingredients. Then shake with ice to chill and dilute. Pour into a desired glass. “Float” wine into glass by pouring over spoon. Top with soda and serve immediately. Makes one drink.
