Hit The Bottle, Ladies: The Downtown Brooklyn Sour—Two Toned Tipple!

/ Thursday, September 19, 2013





I was going to save this cocktail recipe for tomorrow afternoon but it's been a long week, right? Boyfriend got me hooked on New York Sours this past spring: a sweet-sour combination of rye whiskey, lemon juice, and simple syrup with a layer of fruity red wine floated on top. It's striking! (Here's a photo via Bon Appetit with some fabulous cocktail ring/metallic nail polish action going on, too.)
Anyway! I tweaked the cocktail recipe for a party at our place a few weeks back. Instead of juicy red wine, I used a sweet rosé to give the drink a brighter flavor and subtle two-toned effect. Here's how you make it...


THE DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN SOUR
MAKES: 1 drink

3 ounces rye or bourbon
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
1 ounce simple syrup
1 ounce rosé wine

Put the rye, lemon juice and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice; shake 30 seconds and strain into an ice-filled glass. Pour the rose over the back of a spoon on top of the cocktail to make a separate layer.

Cheers! xo Erin
