Orange zest twist
How to make:
STIR all ingredients with ice and strain into ice-filled glass (preferably over a chunk of block ice).
A spirit-forward sipper that's rich and easy with bourbon smoothed and sweetened by maple syrup.
Based on either bourbon whiskey or well-aged rum.
I first encountered the bourbon-based Maple Old Fashioned in 2004 at Indigo Yard in Edinburgh, Scotland but in more recent years, rum seems to have taken over as the prefered spirit base to make a Maple Rum Old-Fashioned. Whichever spirit base you use, makes a delicious riff on the classic Old-Fashioned.
