Cheers to the freakin' weekend! If you know me, you know I love a good cocktail. Typically craft and of the whiskey variety (although I get weak in the knees for a good margarita). When Patrick and I were planning our wedding, I accidentally (not) added a whole lot of bar ware to our registry -- and it just so happened that that's what people bought us. So needless to say, I have had a blast experimenting and playing mixologist (I make a mean old fashioned). However, as you might know by now, I don't do complicated. So if there are more than 4ish ingredients and some of which I have never heard of/can't pronounce, chances are it's not happening.
So here, friends, is the most simple little cocktail to kick off your Friday night.
- 2 oz. Whiskey
- Half lemon
- 1 oz. Grade A Maple Syrup
- Splash of Club Soda (optional)
In a shaker, add ice, whiskey, lemon and maple syrup. Shake it like a shake weight. Pour in a highball glass over ice. If necessary, add a splash of club soda. Enjoy!
