Cocktail Recipe: “Shagbark Leaf”

Makes 1 Drink

This play on a classic Maple Leaf cocktail (bourbon, maple syrup and lemon juice) uses shagbark syrup – which has a strong “woody” flavor. The resulting drink tastes strongly of bourbon (woody & sweet) & cardamom, but less boozy than you’d expect given the 2oz of liquor it contains.

INGREDIENTS
  • Garnish: Lemon Twist

DIRECTIONS

1

Combine all ingredients (except garnish) in a shaker.
2

Add ice.
3

Shake to combine.
4

Strain into a large martini glass.
5

While holding the lemon over the drink, use a channel knife or bar zester to zest a long lemon twist garnish. This ensures any lemon oil that comes out of the zest lands in the drink.
6

Serve.
