Rosemary Maple Bourbon Sour
- Yield 2 servings
The deep richness of maple syrup stars in this sweet, herbaceous cocktail.
This is, simply put, a perfect cool-weather cocktail. So good, in fact, that we find ourselves making it over and over, all year. Dark amber maple syrup lends a deep, rich and sweet note to this herbaceous take on a Whiskey Sour—and yes, also qualifies it as a brunch dish. — Eric Prum and Josh Williams
