New York Sour Cocktail

By CVoisey

This twist on the classic New York Sour brings Glenfiddich Single Malt Whisky from across the pond to take the place of American whiskey. The solera aging process of this 15 year old single malt, lends itself well to a touch of red wine, or in this case, Lillet Rouge, as a bit of a float over the top of the cocktail. Rounded off by layers of citrus, this sour style cocktail is perfect whether you are in New York or Edinburgh.



Remember, great cocktails start with measuring responsibly.

2 parts Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Single Malt Whisky

1 part fresh lemon juice

1 part simple syrup

float of Lillet Rouge


Shake first three ingredients with ice.

Strain into a cocktail glass.

Spritz with lemon peel and discard peel.

Garnish with orange wheel.
