One of my favorite cocktails is the New York Sour because it combines two of my favorite things: Whiskey and wine.
With the weather heating up, I decided to create a fun summer recipe that is a lighter version of the classic featuring tequila and rosé. While this version is very different, the process is still the same — spirit, sugar and citrus are all shaken up. Then, the wine is floated on top.
Creating this drink took me out of my comfort zone. Turns out, I really love how the tequila and rosé work together to make this such a tasty tipple and I think you’ll love this one, too.
