Maple-Bourbon Smash

Maple-Bourbon Smash


As I look out at all of the maple trees starting to dress into their autumn outfits, I think it only fitting to toast them with a maple infused cocktail. This new take on the Old Fashioned is light and fruity with the bite of bourbon tamed by the sweet maple syrup.

Maple-Bourbon Smash

I was looking for a drinking song and came upon this Hungover Mix. It is sufficiently strange enough that I had to share it. Apparently, the singer was so hungover that he couldn’t get out of bed and just lay there singing into his Mac mic.

Check out How To Dress Well on his Website, where you can buy the music.
