Lumberjack Negroni

A Vermont-inspired Negroni after wondering what maple syrup would do with the classic.
12 oz Scotch
12 oz Apple brandy (Aged such as a VS Calvados or Laird's Bonded)
1 oz Campari
34 oz Dry vermouth
14 oz Maple syrup
1 twst Orange peel (As garnish)
Stir with ice, strain into an old fashioned glass with ice, and garnish with an orange twist.
I was inspired by a recent drink with maple syrup to wonder what it would do in a Negroni? The maple made me think of apple brandy and Scotch instead of gin, and I used dry vermouth since the maple provided all the sweetness needed.

  • Great drink. Used Dewars and Mt. Defiance Apple Brandy. Would love to try with different scotch. Maybe sub Aperol and see how that turns out too. — ☆☆☆☆☆
