The secret to this Whiskey Sour variation is a bit of red wine.


  • 2 oz Rye whiskey or bourbon
  • 1 oz Lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz Simple syrup
  • 1 Egg white (optional)
  • 1/2 oz Red wine


  1. Add all ingredients except the wine into a shaker with ice and shake.

  2. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice.

  3. Slowly pour the wine over the back of a bar spoon so that it floats on top of the drink.
