Tuesday Treat

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

  1. Add the bourbon whiskey, lemon juice and maple syrup with a handful of ice to a cocktail shaker. Shake for 15 seconds until cold.
  2. Strain into a glass, with or without a couple of ice cubes. Garnish with a twist of orange and a cocktail cherry. Enjoy!
