Experimenting with different sweeteners has given the bartending world miracles like agave nectar, infused simple syrups, and sugar cane syrups. Another prominent sweetie behind a lot of bars these days is rich, toasty maple syrup. With many different grades ranging from Extra Light to the very dark Grade B, maple syrup goes beyond just sweetening a drink, adding wide array of flavor characteristics that deepen and complicate the way a cocktail tastes. To get you started, try my hard cider cocktail made with maple syrup, bourbon, and Applejack.

Maple Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Maple Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
