I am a sucker for a cocktail, especially a nice warm cocktail for the cool Winter nights. Add to that my love for all things maple and this cocktail jumped out at me when I first saw the recipe. Blame my love for maple syrup on my Ohio childhood. We had a few folks who used to “sugar” around our small town and it was always such a treat when the syrup started to appear at roadside stands.
I don’t normally keep vermouth in the house, but thanks to the relatives from Sicily, I do have some Amaro sitting about. I don’t really like it straight, but mixed into this sweet cocktail I think the bitter would be a unique twist. I would probably add a but more maple syrup to my cup, just to make sure it wasn’t masked by everything else.
