A not-too-sweet, not-too-strong mapley bourbon drink perfect for mixed drinks and on the rocks fans alike.
I love using maple as a sweetener — it’s pure and natural, and a much better alternative to agave (which is actually just as processed as corn syrup, gasp!). It’s vegan, low-glycemic, and just freaking delicious! Also — Maple Seltzer? Talk about specialty food, am I right?? Lightly sweet and super delicious. Can’t find any in your grocery stores? No problem, just use plain seltzer and add a bit more pure maple syrup.
The taste ends up being not too strong, and not too sweet. It’s just right. Good for those mixed-drink-ers and on-the-rocks sippers alike.
