Maple Sour Recipe

Total Time: 5 minutes | Active Time: | Makes: 1

This recipe was given to me by Michael Cecconi, the bartender at Savoy restaurant and creator of the bar menu at Back 40. It’s my favorite drink, by far. Easy to make, perfect flavors together, and I always have the ingredients on hand. It’s also a good year-round cocktail- tangy and refreshing in the summer, but with the warmth of bourbon & maple for the winter.

  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 oz maple syrup (or less, to taste)
  1. Combine ingredients in shaker with ice.
  2. Shake vigorously.
  3. Serve up in a martini glass.
