NY Sour Malbec CocktailCocktail of the Week: a Malbec cocktail the New York Sour
The Philadelphia area has been turned upside down by the imminent and eminent visit of Pope Francis. While I jump on the bandwagon or should I say Popemobile, this week’s cocktail features another great product of Argentina – Malbec – heavenly to drink by the glass and a divine way to add a little spirit to your cocktails.

2oz Bourbon
1oz Lemon Juice
1oz Simple Syrup*
½oz Malbec

Fill a shaker with ice and top with Bourbon, Lemon Juice and Simple Syrup. Shake then strain as you pour over ice in a rocks glass. Carefully pour the Malbec over the back of a spoon so that the wine stays at the top of the glass. Amen!

* Simple Syrup is really simple. Just put 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Turn down to a simmer for a few minutes to dissolve all the sugar. Store in a tightly closed glass jar in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks.
