Thanks to an observant user, we've noticed that David Wondrich in Imbibe has research this cocktail as being rye, not cognac, based. Accordingly I've changed the title and will add the original New York Sour as a distinct recipe. I've also removed the copyrighted image as I believe it was posted without permission and shrunk the instructions to conform to our style guidelines. Thanks for the submission.
