We all know that maple syrup is great with pancakes . But this earthy nectar has another nifty use: it’s simply delicious in cocktails! But don’t take our word for it… try and make one of these 5 cocktails to find out for yourself.
The Maple Man
Nothing says “oh boy” quite like a slender glass of cognac and Oloroso sherry served with a pour of maple syrup. And with muddled lime and mandarin to finish it off, you’ll soon be asking for another round.
The Nose to Cocktail
We agree, it sounds strange, and the list of ingredients don’t help either: eggs, orange juice and bacon-infused whiskey with maple syrup. But it’s when these ingredients come together that the magic happens.
The Negroni never fails to satisfy, and this maple-infused version doesn’t either. The classic base of Vermouth, Gin and Campari remains unchanged, but add a spoonful of maple syrup and a garnish of crispy bacon and you won’t want it any other way… ever again.
Another Fine Mes
This cocktail has proven time and time again that rye whiskey and tequila belong together, but add a dash of maple syrup and BAM! it’s a whole new cocktail. This fancy concoction is given even more depth with the addition of orange liqueur, so strap in and enjoy the ride!
Hudson Highland Cup
A hearty cocktail with a perfect balance between Scotch, hard cider, apple butter and of course, maple syrup. All we can say is that it’s like fall in a cup!
