Bourbon with lemon juice is one of my favorite cocktails. It’s not at all sweet and very easy to make which is right up my alley! If I ever want it a little sweeter, maple syrup is the perfect addition. During this autumn and holiday season, it’s fun to add candied orange or lemon with herbs and spices. Since I prefer simple cocktails, I lightly use these additions in the form of stirrers and garnish.
You can play around with these proportions depending on your tastes preferences.
3 oz. bourbon
1.5 oz. lemon juice
1 oz. maple syrup (I prefer a little less)
garnish: orange or lemon slice, rosemary, cinnamon stick
