"This is a riff off of a New York Sour with stunning results," says Bob Peters, lead bartender of The Punch Room in Charlotte, N.C.


  • 2 ounces Vida Mezcal
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • fresh muddled lemon and lime


Shake ingredients and double strain into glass with fresh ice. Float red wine on top (Peters uses Cabernet). Garnish with orange and homemade brandied cherry.
