Maple Leaf

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.
