Summer Cocktail: New York Sour

It's hot outside, y'all. Like creeping up into the beyond okay territory. That's why we all need a drink, preferably a whiskey one. Ideally, this one from Bon Appetit.

You'll need:

2 ounces rye whiskey (I used Bulleit.)
1 ounce lemon juice
1 ounce simple syrup
1/2 ounce red wine

Combine the first three in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake 20 to 30 seconds. Strain into a glass over a king cube. Pour the red wine (the BA recipe said to use a fruity red wine, but I just used a cabernet we already had, and it was still delicious) over the back of a small spoon just over the drink to make the wine float on top. Drink quickly and love life a little more slash feel the heat a little less. XO
