New York Sour - Happy Hour Cocktail Recipe

Here’s to another successful Carlton Ladies Night! Of course, our cocktails were a big hit. As promised…here’s the New York Sour (Oregon Style!) recipe, one of the cocktails that inspired the Rough Cut Soap Happy Hour soap summer release. So grab a bottle of our Pinot Noir Finished American Whiskey and let’s get started! Recipe below. Cheers!

New York Sour (Oregon Style!)

  • 2 oz Bull Run Pinot Noir Finished American Whiskey

  • 1/2 oz Oregon Pinot Noir

  • 1 oz fresh-squeezed & strained lemon juice

  • 3/4 oz Maple Sugar Simple Syrup*

  • Additional Pinot Noir for garnish


  1. Add whiskey, Pinot Noir, lemon juice, and maple sugar syrup into shaker with ice and shake hard until well chilled.

  2. Strain over a big ice cube in a rocks glass.

  3. Slowly pour Pinot Noir over a bar spoon to float on the top of the drink.

*Maple Sugar Simple Syrup Use 2 to 1 ratio: Pour 1 cup of Crown Maple Sugar and 1/2 cup water into the saucepan. Warm at medium heat until the maple sugar dissolves. Keep in the refrigerator for up to one month.
