Maple Old Fashioned

A classic Old Fashioned gets its sweetness from sugar, but maple syrup adds a deeper, more complex sweetness.


  • 2 ounces bourbon or rye
  • 1 teaspoon dark maple syrup
  • 3–4 dashes bitters
  • Orange peel, for garnish
  • 2 maraschino cherries, for garnish


Combine the bourbon, maple syrup and bitters in a rocks glass. Add ice and stir well to combine. Garnish with orange peel and cherries.
