New Yorker Cocktail Recipe

New Yorker Cocktail Recipe  – A classic New York whisky drink, this cocktail is very popular in all bars and restaurants. There seems to be little consensus on what traditionally constitutes a New Yorker, some recipes calling for claret instead of grenadine, but mostly flaunt a rich red colour and they all provide a fair kick.
