Nobody has any idea where this cocktail came from other than its inclusion of maple syrup makes it either Canadian or American. If I had to guess, I would say that this is a US diner-originated cocktail that uses the same maple syrup that goes over the pancakes. Lemon follows the tradition of the classic whisky sour.
- 60ml bourbon
- 15ml lemon juice
- 12ml maple syrup
Shake all the ingredients with ice and strain into an ice-filled Old Fashioned glass. Garnish with a slip of lemon peel.
Common variants serve with a cinnamon stick.
