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.
- 2oz Bourbon (we used Elijah Craig)
- 3/4oz Lemon Juice
- 3/4oz Shagbark Syrup
- 1 Dash Scrappy’s Cardamom Bitters
- Garnish: Lemon Twist
