2 oz Bourbon, Angel's Envy
1⁄2 oz Lemon juice
1⁄4 oz Orange juice
1⁄4 oz Grenadine
1 oz Red wine (as float)
1 twst Orange peel (flamed, as garnish)

Stir everything but red wine and twist over ice. Strain into a coupe. Float red wine, flame twist over top and discard.


This is a revision of the Brix Layer - a 12 oz cocktail I had recently at a local Portland restaurant. Their idea was to cross an Old Fashioned with a New York Sour. This is more like a Ward Eight crossed with a New York Sour.
