Maple Whisky Sour (Serves 1)
This is delicious, perfect for a mid-winter evening!… And it’s so easy to make – you have been warned! The maple syrup adds a lovely dimension, a beautiful balance with the bourbon, however you could use sugar syrup instead.
4 tablespoons bourbon whiskey (I like Makers Mark)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1½ tablespoons pure maple syrup (or sugar syrup)
A handful of ice
Orange peel and a cocktail cherry to garnish
- Add the bourbon whiskey, lemon juice and maple syrup with a handful of ice to a cocktail shaker. Shake for 15 seconds until cold.
- Strain into a glass, with or without a couple of ice cubes. Garnish with a twist of orange and a cocktail cherry. Enjoy!
