Maple Old Fashioned Cocktail Recipe
We’re introducing a Michigan-winter twist to this Maple Old Fashioned recipe that will have your winter guests leaving impressed by your classic cocktail-making skills.
There is much debate on what makes a good old fashioned. This quick and easy to follow recipe doesn’t take too many liberties, and is suitable for the casual cocktail maker and old fashioned connoisseur alike. Maple, orange, cherry, bourbon–– it’s really hard to mess this up!
MAPLE OLD FASHIONED
Yields one serving:
- 2 ounce ( ¼ cup) bourbon or rye whiskey
- Recommended bourbon - Four Grain Bourbon from Detroit City Distilery
- Recommended rye whiskey - Homegrown Rye Whiskey from Detroit City Distillery
- 1 teaspoon Michigan-made maple syrup
- 4 dashes of bitters
- Orange peel for garnish
- Cocktail cherry for garnish (optional)
- Ice for serving
Step 1: Stir in your bourbon or whiskey, maple syrup, and bitters of your choice inside your Pewabic Rocks Cup. Add a large ice cube to your vessel or put your Rocks Cups in the freezer overnight and skip the ice.
Step 2: Extract an orange rind with a knife or peeler that is roughly 1” wide. Give the orange peel a light squeeze to infuse zest into the drink (optional) and drag the rind across the inside edge of the glass. Place the remaining garnish in the drink and place your cherry on top. Et voila!
Pewabic Rocks Cups make the perfect serving glasses–– pictured here in Pewabic Blue! You can chill them beforehand, or not. The choice is completely up to you.
