The Story Behind The Ruby Sour
When made right, a New York Sour is a delicious combination of bold, sweet, and balanced flavors. I wanted to take it to the next level, so I came up with this Old 502 Sour. It features aromatic bitters, bourbon, and wine, all produced in Kentucky.
The balance of this cocktail relies a lot on the dry red wine. Whether you tend to prefer sweeter or drier wines is a good indicator of the type of bottle to use here.
- 1 ½ ounces bourbon
- ½ ounce aromatic bitters
- 1 ounce lemon juice
- ½ ounce orange juice
- ½ ounce agave syrup
- 1 ounce dry red wine
- 1 egg white
- Combine everything except the wine in a cocktail shaker with ice.
- Shake hard to chill and combine.
- Fine strain into a coupe glass.
- Float red wine on top.
- Garnish and enjoy!
