Sideways sour

This cocktail was adapted from one at Bellagio's Baccarat Bar in Las Vegas. The wine is poured on top just before serving, so that it floats with flair. <i>Na Zdrowie</i>!!<br>
<br>
Note: The sweet and sour will keep for 1 week, refrigerated.<br>
<br>
Servings: 4<br>
<br>
<b>Sweet and sour:</b> <br>
1/4  cup sugar<br>
1/2  cup fresh lemon juice<br>
<br>
In a small saucepan, stir the sugar with one-fourth cup water over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Cool. Combine the cooled simple syrup and lemon juice. Makes 1 cup (8 ounces).<br>
<br>
<b>Cocktail assembly:</b><br>
8 ounces pisco<br>
3 ounces Cointreau liqueur<br>
6 ounces white grape juice<br>
6 ounces sweet and sour<br>
3 ounces California Pinot Noir<br>
4 slices lemon<br>
3 grapes<br>
<br>
In a large pitcher filled with ice, add the pisco, Cointreau, grape juice and sweet and sour and stir to combine. Strain the cocktail into 4 old-fashioned glasses filled with ice. Slowly pour three-fourths ounce Pinot over the back of a spoon into each cocktail (the Pinot will float on top and slowly diffuse into the cocktail). Garnish with a lemon slice, and float the grapes on top of the drink (if they are still attached to the stem, you can hang the stem on the rim of the glass).
