Broken Branch {a rye maple syrup cocktail}

One of the best ways to start creating your own cocktail recipes is to take a classic recipe and tweak it. Take the whiskey sour for example… Replace the simple syrup with a different sweetener (say maple syrup) and add in a little something extra (say Drambuie) and you have a different drink along the same lines of the classic. And in case you couldn’t tell already, that’s exactly what I did with this maple syrup cocktail.

At the end of a long day, the last thing I want to do is get super fancy and creative when it comes to what I’m drinking. Lately, I’ve been sticking to the classics – Manhattan, Negroni, Old Fashioned – because they are easy and I love them. And when I want something with a little citrus, I generally make a whiskey sour. Or a simple variation of it – like this rye maple syrup cocktail.

I suppose with the addition of maple syrup and a touch of Drambuie, this could be considered a fall cocktail. I know it definitely hit the spot when I enjoyed it on a cooler evening. Go make yourself one and let me know what you think.
