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.
