While scouring the internet searching for the perfect red wine cocktail recipe for this week’s Wines by Wives Wine Cocktail Wednesday, we ran across the New York Sour. A red wine twist on the classic whiskey sour. This recipe calls for the use of a sweet red wine, such as Shiraz or Malbec. Try it out with any of our great selections here: http://bit.ly/WBWRedWine
Combine 2 ounces rye or bourbon whiskey, 1 ounce fresh lemon juice, and 1 ounce simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice, cover, and shake until outside of shaker is frosty, about 30 seconds. Strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice. Gently pour 1/2 ounce fruity red wine over the back of a spoon held just above the drink’s surface so wine floats on top.
*Simple Syrup: Can be purchased or made by following this recipe. In a small saucepan heat 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water and bring to a boil. When the sugar is completely dissolved remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Refrigerate, covered, for up to 1 week.
Wines by Wives would like to take a moment to wish all the wonderful women of the world a Happy International Women’s Day!
Women’s Day began as a protest in New York City in the early 1900’s against the mistreatment and inequality of women in the workforce. The first National Women’s Day was observed in the U.S. on February 28, 1909. After many women’s day conferences in the U.S. and Europe, the movement gained recognition and several European countries began observing the day. The Russian women’s “Bread and Peace” strike during WWI catapulted the movement into what it is today. in response to the deaths of 2 million Russian soldiers, Russian women in the work force went on strike for 4 days, forcing the Czar to give Russian women the right to vote. International Women’s Day is now an official holiday in Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, China (for women only), Cuba, Georgia, Guinea-Bissau, Eritrea, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Madagascar (for women only), Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Nepal (for women only), Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and Zambia. In many countries IWD is celebrated just as you would celebrate Mother’s Day, with men and children giving gifts ad showing appreciation to the important women in their lives.
Let’s make today a day of recognition, appreciation, and support to any woman who has touched your life.
