Cocktail Hour – Maple Bourbon Sour

I’m bringing this sophisticated take on the classic whiskey sour back this week. Made well, the whiskey sour will pack a sweet but tangy, citrus punch at the same time. This cocktail is a little softer around the edges with a more complex flavor profile. The deep oak-yness of the bourbon is rounded out with the richness of the maple syrup, and finished with a floral note of rosemary. A delightful cocktail that pairs well with a simple silhouette, but edgy color and pattern.
