New England Sour

Out of Saison

New England Distilling founder Ned Wight takes a classic cocktail recipe — the New York Sour — and subs in Saison whiskey for the classic rye, to create yeasty, floral notes.

 

2 ounces New England Distilling Saison
1 ounce lemon juice
¾ ounce simple syrup
1 egg white (optional)
½ ounce red wine, something nice and fruity

 

Add whiskey, lemon juice, and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice. Shake for about 30 seconds. Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass. Pour red wine over the back of a spoon and into the glass, so that wine floats on top of the drink.
