Taste of Home… Cinnamon Maple Whiskey Sour

Holiday party season is upon us!  For those of you who know me, know I love whiskey.  A few years back I came across a whiskey sour recipe with a twist (CookieAndKate.com).  It’s sweetened with maple syrup instead of simple syrup and has cinnamon in it!  It’s delicious and a crowd pleaser.  When invited to parties this time of year, in lieu of bringing wine, I multiply this recipe and put it in a half gallon mason jar.

Meet the best whiskey sour recipe—it’s full of bourbon and fresh lemon, sweetened with maple syrup and includes a hint of cinnamon (spice is optional). Feel free to multiply the amounts given below by up to four, if you’d like to make a bigger batch in your cocktail shaker all at once.



Per cocktail

  • 1 ½ ounces (3 tablespoons) Bulleit bourbon or your bourbon of choice

  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) fresh lemon juice

  • 2 to 4 teaspoons maple syrup, to taste (I like 3 teaspoons, which is the equivalent of ½ ounce or 1 tablespoon)

  • Pinch of ground cinnamon, optional



Fill a cocktail shaker or mason jar about two-thirds full with ice. Pour in the bourbon, lemon juice, maple syrup and a pinch of ground cinnamon. Securely fasten the lid and shake well.

Pour fresh ice into your cocktail glass and strain the cold whiskey sour mixture into the glass. Enjoy!
