Alright, It’s winter and it’s cold as all hell. If you’re a fan of mixing drinks and finding new flavours, check out this recipe of a Maple Old Fashioned from the Barman’s Journal to warm you up this winter:
- 2 oz. of Canadian Whisky (or any whisky, really)
- 1/2 oz. maple syrup (Usually just a teaspoon will do)
- 2 dashes of bitters (I used the classic Angostura bitters)
- 1/4 oz. orange juice (Optional, for a citrus taste)
- 1 large ice cube
This is a great use of a whisky that just doesn’t taste right by itself. I used my recently-reviewed Aberlour 10 and it worked very well. I’m not a fan of adding fruit and garnishes to my drinks, so I added the orange juice as optional. The blend of maple syrup, bitters, and whisky is a simple and fantastic mixture.
