Happy Halloween! This variation on a classic Old Fashioned features Escuminac Late Harvest maple syrup and torched rosemary.
Escuminac Late Harvest maple syrup is intensely dark with notes of rye, caramel and roasted sugar.
2 oz bourbon
1/2 oz Escuminac Late Harvest maple syrup
2 dashes Angostura aromatic bitters
2 dashes orange bitters
1 orange slice
2 rosemary sprigs
Keep one rosemary sprig for garnish and shake all other ingredients with ice for at least 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Add one large ice cube and garnish with a sprig of rosemary.
To add a smoky flavor, torch the rosemary garnish until it begins to smoke.
