5 Classic Cocktails With a Twist

—–

The start of a new year is the perfect time to experiment with something new. This year, take your usual go-to drinks but add a unique spin to make it something fresh and new!

 

Maple Old Fashioned

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz bourbon or rye
  • 3–4 dashes Angostura aromatic bitters
  • 1/2 tsp maple syrup
  • orange peel
  • ice

 

Instructions:

  1. Use a vegetable peeler or knife to carefully cut a 2-3 inch long piece of orange peel. Run the pulp-side of the peel around the rim of the cocktail glass, then set the peel aside for later.
  2. Add the bourbon, bitters, and maple syrup to the glass, and briefly stir to combine. Add the ice, then briefly stir the drink one more time to mix and chill.
  3. Give the orange peel a good twist above the glass to release its oils, then tuck it into the drink.  
  4. Sip & enjoy!
