Maple Syrup Old Fashioned
Makes one glass
1/2 teaspoon maple syrup, or more to taste
2 dashes Angostura bitters
2 ounces rye whiskey or bourbon
orange-peel coin, for garnish
Stir the maple syrup, bitters, and whiskey together in your cup.
Add more syrup to taste if needed.
Squeeze the orange-peel coin, peel side facing down,
over the cocktail to spritz orange oil over the cocktail.
Add a piece or two of ice to your cocktail,
give another stir and enjoy!
Using large chunks of ice helps keep this drink for getting too watered down.
If the temperature is cold outside it might be best to warm the syrup up with the alcohol slightly to dissolve the flavors before adding the ice.
Perfect sipping drink to sit with by a cozy fire.
