Maple Leaf

Maple Leaf cocktail with bourbon, lemon juice, and maple syrup

The Maple Leaf is a simple riff on the classic Whiskey Sour template, but it’s delicious enough to merit its own entry in Cocktail Party.

We like using Grade B maple syrup in our drinks. It’s darker, with a stronger maple flavor that comes through in a stiff drink.

Whatever you do, just make sure you have a true maple syrup, rather than a maple-flavored corn syrup (as is regrettably commonplace in the US).

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
