  • Use 1/4 oz maple
  • Okay, but a bit overrated. Tried with less maple, added ango as suggested, but just not that special... could use some more fiddling...
  • This is good. I made as described. It felt like it was missing something. I added some ango and a spray of Laphroiag 10yr. I think next time I will decrease the maple syrup a little, keep ango and maybe Laphroiag.

I was out of Maple Syrup so used simple syrup. It's a nice aperitif-style cocktail with a tiny less ABV than normal.
