The latest craze in DC mixology has been cocktails made with maple syrup. Check out this awesome recipe from Madtini.com for an easy and incredibly refreshing cocktail.
Oh and don’t skimp out on the quality of the maple syrup. Go with some dark and rich Canadian stuff. Once they taste the drink I think Aunt Jemima and Mrs. Butterworth would be ok with it.
- 1 1/2 oz Maker’s Mark (or any other type of bourbon)
- 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
- 1/2 oz pure maple syrup
- Ginger Beer – use a splash or go with more to make it a little less intense
Combine the bourbon, lime juice and maple syrup in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake several times. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice. Add a splash of ginger beer on top and garnish with a lime wheel.
