Continental Sour or Southern Whiskey Sour


A classic bourbon-based Whiskey Sour made more interesting – both visually and in flavour by the addition of a little red wine.


Thought to have been first made in the 1880s by a bartender in Chicago this drink was originally named the Continental Sour and then Southern Whiskey Sour before becoming the New York Sour, probably after a bartender in Manhattan started serving the drink and made it popular.
