I do know that I’ve been rambling about my bizarre love of maple this yr (I’ve been tired of it my whole life!) and the second I noticed this, I nearly died. I tasted it that night after which after I needed to make a wine run for a celebration every week later, grabbed a bottle.
I.am.obsessed. YEP. I knew that the smoked maple quaint needed to occur.
That is tremendous smoky. Tremendous maple-y. It’s actually scrumptious and I do know that I needed to create some form of enjoyable cocktail with it!
We did our personal little model of smoking a slice of lemon and orange rind in a glass earlier than including the bitters, maple syrup and smoked maple bourbon. It undoubtedly upped the smoky taste and made it so curiously good. When you like bourbon and also you additionally like smoky cocktails (assume: mezcal!) then you’ll go loopy for this.
It packs a robust punch. It’s completely price it!
