Maple Cider Twist on the Rocks

Here’s to your Thanksgiving cocktail hour!! This drink combines Grade B Maple Syrup from Grandma Z’s Maple Haus in Pittsburgh with Tennessee Cider whiskey (thank you Jack), bitters, and a little lemon zest.  Yum, yum, yum!! Cheers!…P.S. Grade B Maple Syrup is one of two grades used in the U.S., Grades A and B.  Grade A typically has a milder flavor, while Grade B is very dark in color with a rich, maple flavor.

    Nicole, Your Maple Cider Twist on the rocks was a huge success–all the adults at our Thanksgiving in Omaha, enjoyed the pre dinner drink. And you were right, don’t drink more than two :)
