Autumn Bourbon Rickey

BourbonRickey

Here is a nice cocktail to put you in the mood for the season. The lime juice really balances the sweetness of the bourbon, and the maple syrup adds a litle of it back in. The woodsiness of the maple syrup compliments the smokiness of the bourbon. All in all, this is a nicely balanced cocktail. I will definitely have it again.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Lime wheels for bottom of glass
  • 0.5 oz dark maple syrup
  • 1 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1.5 oz your favorite bourbon
  • Club soda
  • Lime wheels for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Put two lime wheels in a highball glass and fill the glass with ice.
  2. Combine the maple syrup, lime juice and bourbon in a shaker.
  3. Shake it like you mean it!
  4. Pour over ice in glass.
  5. Top with club soda.
  6. Stir briefly to combine.
  7. Top with more lime wheels for garnish.
