Being a Vermonter, I am totally into maple syrup. A lot of my friends make their own, which is such an incredible feat. 40 gallons of sap yields 1 gallon of maple syrup. It is a labor of love, but culminates in such an amazing product.
Imagine a smooth whiskey with a dash of sweet maple syrup stirred in and you have this unbelievably heady cocktail. It is the best whiskey drink I have tried in a long while. It goes down dangerously easy. Believe me, you need to try one today.
2 oz bourbon whiskey (I used Maker’s Mark)
1/2 oz maple syrup
Lemon peel twist
Dash of bitters
1. Fill an old fashioned glass with ice. Pour in bourbon and maple syrup. Stir in bitters. Garnish with lemon and serve.
One of my favorite artists EVAH is King Post Kitsch. Charlie just nails it every time.
When I was thinking what I wanted to listen to while I knocked back my cocktail was this older tune.
For your second drink, blast this song from April’s “Sheep On A Beach” album.
