Because hot water is still in the pipes from when you turned on the hot water, and when you turned on the cold faucet it had to let out the hot water first. This means you have a single-pipe sink. Double-pipe sinks have a pipe for hot and a pipe for cold and it blends them as it turns on.

There are a few things you can do. First wrap the hot water lines from the water heater to the faucets.

You can also install a small on demand water heater near that faucet. It will produce hat water when the faucet is turn on. There is no storage tank on this type unit. They are very small and can fit under a sink.
