I’m always excited about adding new recipes to my repertoire, and as a fan of bourbon cocktails, this one was a big hit. If you’re a little on the fence about whiskey-based drinks, this is a fantastic recipe to test the waters. It’s the right balance of citrusy and sweet, and it still lets the bourbon’s complex flavors come through. Maple syrup, a splash of fresh-squeezed lemon juice, and a pinch of cinnamon play together wonderfully in this Cinnamon Maple Whiskey Sour.
This drink can be enjoyed any time of year thanks to its easy-to-find ingredients, but I’ve found that it makes a particularly great sipper for those breezy autumn weekends when you’re content to just stay at home and enjoy yourself. I love serving it on an ice ball, which elevates the overall cocktail experience. I’m eager to share this delightful bourbon-based recipe with you, so follow along and let’s mix one up!
Step 1: Pour ingredients in cocktail shaker.
Step 2: Add ice, secure lid, and shake vigorously until chilled.
Step 3: Place an ice ball (or fresh ice) into your cocktail glass and strain shaker contents into the glass.
Step 4: Garnish with a pinch of ground cinnamon and a lemon spiral to elevate your presentation.
See, how easy was that? If you’re interested in viewing more of my bourbon cocktail recipes but don’t know where to start, let me direct you to my Apple Butter Old Fashioned and my Pecan Old Fashioned. They’re both delicious fall cocktails that feature bourbon as the base spirit, and of course, there are more bourbon recipes to discover under the recipes section of my site. So, bourbon fans rejoice and bourbon newbies, never fear – this is one drink that will leave you saying, “Yum!”
