1 oz Bourbon, Old Grand Dad 100
1⁄4 oz Coffee liqueur, St. George (NOLA)
1⁄4 oz Maple syrup (Grade A Dark Color, Robust Taste)
1 Orange peel (as garnish)

Stir, strain into old fashioned glass with a large cube or sphere. Garnish with an orange swath. If you're feeling ambitious, you can also smoke the drink with maplewood.


The St. George NOLA Coffee Liqueur is drier than most large producer coffee liqueurs, so adjust ratios or add another dash of Angostura bitters if using something sweeter.

I prefer using "Grade A Dark Color, Robust Taste" syrup (formerly Grade B) in cocktails due to its stronger, more intense maple flavor.
