Maple Avenue Cocktail

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had the love for pecan praline ice cream  as well as maple flavor that went on my pancakes. As a cocktail enthusiast I came up with drink that combines the flavors of both maple and pecan that will please even the most particular of drinkers. I used real Vermont maple syrup along with a good grade of bourbon, pecan liqueur, fresh orange juice and some bitters and a wonderful drink was born. Remember to use top grade of maple syrup not imitation flavored otherwise it will alter the taste. This is a great drink for any occasion, you’ll love it. Maple Avenue Cocktail

God bless and Cheers,
