Sixth Ward Sour
Saved by 1 Person
About this Cocktail

This is my Irish Whiskey take on the New York Sour - a sour topped with red wine. It’s name is taken from the sixth ward of Manhattan, New York, which was home to the Five Points gang, a notorious band of mostly Irish-American criminals that had their heyday during the 19th and early 20th-century.

Ingredients:
  • 3 Dashes Jameson Wild Seaweed Bitters
  • 1 Egg White
  • 1 oz Lemon Juice
  • 1 oz Spiced Stout Syrup*
  • ½ oz Vintage Port (to float)
  • 2 oz Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey
Preparation:

Dry shake everything except port for a good long minute. Add ice and shake vigorously for another minute. Fine strain into an old fashioned glass over fresh ice. Pour port on top over the back of a spoon to get a cool looking layer on the drink. Sláinte!

*Spiced Stout Syrup:
1 liter Guinness Irish Stout
1 kg Demerara sugar
½ cup Whole Cloves
½ cup Whole Allspice
3 Cinnamon sticks
3 whole star anise pods
1 Whole Orange zest
2 inch fresh ginger, grated
Pinch of salt
Add everything to a saucepan and bring to a boil, allow to simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let everything steep for 5 minutes. Fine strain with a cheesecloth and bottle. It should keep for 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
