One of the most popular and simplest riffs on a traditional Old Fashioned – who doesn’t love Maple syrup!?

The Maple Old Fashioned has only a slight variation on it’s big brother. The difference is the removal of sugar (whether it be a sugar cube or sugar syrup) and replace it with a good quality maple syrup. You can go down the easy path and simply put straight maple into your Old Fashioned and make sure you stir a little longer for more dilution…or you can make a thinner syrup by mixing two parts maple syrup to one part water (heat on stove to mix) which is my preferred method.

Keep it Canadian by using a Canadian Whisky in addition to the Canadian maple syrup as per Jeffery Morgenthaler’s recipe in his book, The Bar Book: Elements of Cocktail Technique (highly recommended).
