The New York Cocktail is a classic and the simple mix is one that many people will enjoy. It is similar to a Whiskey Sour, though this drink adds the sweetness of grenadine to balance out some of the tartness of that drink.
The choice of whiskey is open to interpretation. Originally, blended whiskey was used and there are many great options available today. Rye whiskey and even a mellow bourbon would work as well. Of course, you could always go with the masters of blended whiskey and choose a Canadian bottle.
