This drink could be likened to a classic Old-Fashioned, made with maple sugar candy in place of a sugar cube.
Yield: Makes 1 Drink
- Cut maple leaf in half. Place one half into an old-fashioned glass. Add bitters. Muddle into a paste. Add large ice cube to old-fashioned glass along with paste. Pour in whisky. Pull a long strip of lemon peel over the glass, releasing oils into cocktail. Gently pinch, peel side out, misting oils over surface of the drink. Rub peel around the outside rim of the glass, then add.
