This drink is one part Southern (Bourbon), one part Yankee (Maple Syrup). It’s also a good transitional drink to take you from the cold winter months to the Derby day sunshine.
1 cup Bourbon
1/3 cup Maple Syrup
1/3 cup lemon juice
4 cinnamon sticks
In a shaker or 4-cup measure, combine the Bourbon, Maple Syrup, and lemon juice. Shake or stir until well incorporated. Fill four tumblers with ice, and divide the Bourbon mixture between the glasses. Garnish each glass with a cinnamon stick.
