Comment:

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

About:

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, also masquerading as a Brunswick Sour and Claret Snap before becoming best known as the New York Sour, probably after a bartender in Manhattan started serving the drink and made it popular.
