Spicy New Yorker Cocktail Recipe.

Spicy New Yorker Cocktail Recipe

Earlier in the week I shared a recipe for what might be the best Bloody Mary I’ve ever had… today I’m going to share another yummy recipe (and next week I will share the two margarita recipes we made). This cocktail was totally new to me and kind of fun as a) I barely ever drink whiskey and b) I learned how to do a wine float! It’s essentially a spicy whisky sour and I have to tell you – it’s absolutely delicious!

Also: Molly gave me a code: GRACE30 gets you 30% off sitewide at Red Clay!

Spicy New Yorker Cocktail Recipe


  • 2 oz. bourbon
  • 2 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 oz. Red Clay Hot Honey
  • 1 oz. red wine
  • Fresh cherries to garnish


  • Combine bourbon, lemon, and Red Clay Hot Honey in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake for 20 seconds (or until the shaker feels frosty) and strain into a rocks glass filled with large ice cubes.
  • Top with a float of red wine (to do this, hold your bar spoon round side up and pour the red wine over the spoon).
  • Garnish with cherries.

    I just bought the honey and some other goodies. My husband adores bourbon, red wine, and honey so I cannot wait to make this for him! Thanks for sharing the recipe and the code.

    Curious – what else would you use this hot honey for?! Interested in ideas 🙂

      I like it on an english muffin with greek yogurt (weird but good) and it is amazing on pizza (especially with pepperoni!)

    YUM. This looks so good.

    Thanks for the code! I ordered the All Stars set for my brother who is hot sauce obsessed, the hot honey for myself, and the margarita + bloody mary salts for a friend. Super excited to try it all.
