Orange Maple Old-Fashioned Cocktail
Happy Friday! Can you believe another busy week has flown by? Hopefully you had a great one & hopefully you have some fun weekend plans in the works…we sure do! This Orange Maple Old-Fashioned cocktail is perfect for ladies & gents.

It has all the thrills of bourbon with a twist of citrus, a splash of orange bitters and some dark amber maple syrup. It is even the cocktail of choice on the popular series Mad Men.

Your welcome….

Orange Maple Old-Fashioned Cocktail

Usually I post cocktails that can be made virgin or kiddo friendly. In this case that is not the case. This drink is mostly bourbon with littles citrus splashes for accents. This is a vintage cocktail that dates back to the 1800′s. Messing with it too much would be pointless.

That would be another drink.

You gotta love bourbon to love this cocktail. You do? OK….then great. You have a new best friend.

The Gouda Life & Kitchen Riffs both describe this cocktail perfectly. For those who don’t like bourbon over ice, this takes the profound flavor down a notch, without loosing the integrity of the bourbon. As the ice melts the flavors combine and simmer down the heat a little bit.

For folks who want a full bodied bourbon kick you won’t loose a thing.

This is a drink you drink slowly and mindfully. Not one you slam in seconds. This is comfort and sophistication. No bells and whistles. After all it’s old-fashioned, a classic.

I love that old fashioned’s are served in short “Old Fashioned” glasses. No tall stems to get in your way. Not too easy to tip over. The glass has some weight, to give a warm hug to the drink inside.

A small squat glass is simply another indicator that this is meant to be savored ~ enjoyed ~ sip. by. sip.

Hopefully you have a wonderful weekend. Enjoy!
