New York Sour


Just because you're holed up at home doesn't mean it has to suck. Why not make a fancy cocktail and feel good about the fact that a) you're a bad-ass bartender now, b) this drink has 3.6 grams of protein so it's nearly a meal, and c) it will single-handedly save you from scurvy while being a shut-in. If you think about it, making and consuming this drink is actually a very responsible thing for you to do. #Adulting

This pale pink beauty is exactly what you’d expect from a whiskey sour but with a subtle twist. It's an extremely pleasant drink with a tart bite and a smooth finish. Don't have port? Try a dry red wine (Syrah or Malbec). Don't have an egg or want raw egg whites in your drink - skip it.

New York Sour

1.25 oz rye (or whiskey or bourbon)

.75 oz fresh lemon juice

.5 oz simple syrup*
