Bordeaux Sour & Variation

How to make the perfect Bordeaux Sour two ways. This variant of the whiskey sour combines Whiskey and Bordeaux, two flavors that you think would not go together. In this video I make two versions, one with egg white and one without egg white. These work surprisingly well together. These are both the same except for the addition of an egg white to create that creamy mouth feel. And yes it not only changes the texture but the flavors are different as well.
We are going to do something interesting we are going to attempt to make red wine taste good. I am sure those are fighting words for some people in the audience. Let me be honest with you I am not a wine guy, so we will make a Bordeaux Sour Cocktail with some red wine to make it taste good.
This is interesting because I have not seen many variations of it, but I will use the one from I am going to make a slight variation. We are going to do these two ways for you. I will do one without an egg white for those who do not want an egg white and do not need that extra foamy head. We will make it with egg white for those other people who want a nice foamy head. Let us make this drink because I am sure it will be excellent, so we will do this first with your shaking glass. The first thing you need is your maraschino cherry of choice; try really hard not to go with one of those nuclear red cherries. Go with a good cherry, a luxardo, an amarana or something like that.
