Bordeaux Sour Cocktail

Bordeaux Sour CocktailWe are going to do something interesting we are going to attempt to make red wine taste good. Now those are fighting words for some people in the audience, I am sure. Let me be honest with you I am not a wine guy, so we are going to make a Bordeaux Sour Cocktail with some red wine to make it taste good.

This is interesting because I have not seen very many variations of it, but I will use the one from liquor.com. I am going to make a slight variation. We are going to do these two ways for you. One I will do without an egg white for those people who do not want an egg white and do not need that extra foamy head. For those other people that want a nice foamy head, we will make it with egg white. Let us get on to making 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 or an amarana or something like that.

Bordeaux Sour Cocktail

Bordeaux Sour No. 1

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.

  • 1 Maraschino Cherry
  • .5 oz Maple Syrup
  • 2 oz Bourbon
  • 1 oz Bordeaux
