1 Cherry (as garnish)

Shake, strain into DOF, garnish


Original calls for maple simple syrup that includes peppercorns, fennel seeds, cloves, allspice, nutmeg, star anise, and a bay leaf (though I expect all that trouble doesn't make that much difference against 1/2 an ounce of St. Elizabeth).

Love this drink and I, too, make it with "just" mapel syrup instead of the maple syrup concoction provided in the book.
