Doesn't get more classic than a New York Sour! This easy and delicious whiskey cocktail gets its name from the beautiful color blocking!

Recipe Card


  • 2 ounces whiskey
  • Lemon, juiced
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 1/2 egg white, (optional, this is what makes the pretty foam on top, but if raw eggs make you queasy, skip it)
  • 1 ounce red wine
  • Orange zest, for garnish


  • Step 1

    Fill your cocktail shaker with ice and add the whiskey, lemon juice, simple syrup and egg white (if using). Vigorously shake for about a minute, the shaker will get frosty on the outside when it’s ready. Fill a rocks glass with ice, and strain whiskey mixture over (reserving a bit of the egg foam, if using).

  • Step 2

    Now the tricky part, layering the wine. Take a tablespoon and slowly pour the red wine over the back of it creating a ‘float’ over the whiskey mixture. The slower you go here the better. (If you’ve ever made a black and tan, it’s a similar technique). Add a little egg foam on top if you wish and garnish with the orange zest. Cheers!
