Cocktail Hour with Maple Syrup

Posted by

If you're like most of us, you probably keep a bottle of maple syrup around for occasional use on your pancakes or waffles. You might even use it once in a while for some sauces or glazes. Of course you can add it to your favorite desserts. But have you tired mixing it in your cocktails?  Just like in your favorite foods, maple syrup can add sweetness and depth to your favorite drinks!  Not sure where to begin?  Allen Katz makes it easy!
