Maple Old Fashioned

Drink: Maple Old Fashioned

The Maple Old Fashioned is subtle, sweet, and just right for fall. Shifting away from a traditional Old Fashioned, this cocktail uses dark rum as its primary spirit, allowing for the flavor of the maple syrup to shine while counterbalancing the syrupy thickness. When mixing this drink, take a “less is more” approach until you reach the perfect balance.


  • 2 oz. dark rum
  • 1/2 oz. maple syrup
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • Garnish: orange twist


  1. Add the dark rum, maple syrup and Angostura bitters into a mixing glass with ice and stir until well-chilled.
  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish with an orange twist.
