Maple Bourbon Old Fashioned Cocktail

Real maple syrup is so tasty in this twist on an old fashioned cocktail – it adds not only a touch of sweetness but also a depth of flavor. Be sure to use a high quality maple syrup and keep your maple syrup refrigerated when not using.


2 ounces bourbon

1/2 ounces REAL maple syrup (store in a squirt bottle or small decorative bottle with a fine pouring tip)

1 dash Bitter Truth Orange Bitters

1 dash Bitter Truth Creole Bitters


Measure bourbon, maple syrup and bitters into a mixing glass.

Fill 3/4 with ice and stir swiftly for 20 seconds.

Strain over fresh ice in an Old Fashioned glass.

Squeeze orange disk over top of drink and drop in.

Great example drink for how big a difference the garnish can make. Those orange oils and the change in nose transform this.

Canadian Maple Syrup? ..... ugh,  Vermont has the best in the world and it’s right in your own country.  Despicable.
