The Rosemary Maple Bourbon Sour

This is, simply put, a perfect fall 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.

The Rosemary Maple Bourbon Sour
makes two cocktails

  • 3 shots bourbon
  • 1 & 1/2 shots fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 shot dark amber maple syrup
  • 1 large sprig of rosemary (plus 2 small sprigs for garnish)
  1. Crush the large sprig of rosemary in your hand and add it to the shaker.
  2. Add the bourbon, lemon juice, maple syrup and ice to above the level of the liquid and shake vigorously for 15 seconds.
  3. Strain the mixture into rocks glasses containing large cubes of ice and garnish with remaining rosemary sprigs.
