A Whiskey Sour smoothed by the addition of egg white and made more visually appealing and interesting by red wine tannins.
Although this egg white enriched Whisky Sour with a New York Sour red wine float was made in other numerous bars, particularly in London, prior to Manhattan's Employees Only opening in 2004, this cocktail is closely associated to EO and almost certainly owes its name to the bar's proximity to New York's Greenwich Villiage district.
