Maple Leaf Martini

Maple Martini

My family set out to enjoy this unseasonably gorgeous weather this past weekend, with a good ol’ Sunday Funday!

CordevalleWe made our way to Cordevalle, a gorgeous golf resort about a half hour from our home. The sun was shining, I was with my favorite people and when I glanced at the cocktail menu, I knew I had found my new happy place.

As my eyes worked their way down the list, I was beyond excited to try their Maple Leaf Martini… and lucky for me they shared their secret recipe – which I am going to share with you all!

Poured Cocktail

Maple Leaf Martini

1.5 oz Basil Hayden Bourbon
1 tsp high quality Maple Syrup
1 Lemon Juice Ice Cube (equal parts lemon juice and water)

Add maple syrup and bourbon to an ice filled shaker and shake vigorously.  Strain into a martini glass over a large Lemon Juice Ice Cube.

The great part of this cocktail, is it only gets better as the “ice cube” melts! Such a genius idea… I can’t wait to try out some new variations of the “flavored ice cube!”

    I’m going to try this just as soon as I get a lemon! Plenty of maple and bourbon in the house already…

I'd love your thoughts!
