#DOTW: Maple Whiskey Sour

Thanksgiving is fast approaching, and some of you will need ideas on what to serve for cocktails, and of course I’m chuck full of ideas. Wine is great, maybe some eggnog is gonna start making appearances, but for me, a whiskey sounds like a perfect Thanksgiving drink. Of course it must be mixed with holiday goodies to fit the occasion, and this spririted treat delivers just that!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz of Maker’s Mark Bourbon (or quality Bourbon of your choice)
  • 1 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz Maple syrup
  • cinnamon powder
  • lemon peel

In a cocktail shaker combine Maker’s Mark, lemon juice and maple syrup with ice. Shake well. Add ice to a highball glass or large rocks glass, and pour in mixture. Add a couple of dashes of cinnamon powder on top. Garnish with a lemon peel.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
