New York Sour
5 cl (1,7 oz.) Whisky, Rye or Bourbon
2 cl (0,7 oz.) Lemon Juice
1.5 cl (0,5 oz.) Simple Syrup
1 dash of Egg White
2 cl (0,7 oz.) Red Wine
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).
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!
