- rocks glass
- 50 ml rye or bourbon whiskey
- 25 ml lemon juice
- 2 tsp simple syrup
- 20 ml red wine
- 1 egg white (optional)
- Mix the whiskey, lemon juice, simple syrup and egg white (optional) in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake hard until well-chilled.
- Strain the liquid into a rocks glass over fresh ice.
