Through a series of fortunate events I have found myself with a ridiculous amount (3 gallons) of Vermont grade A medium amber maple syrup. I have been working through my inventory, and despite incorporating it into at least two meals each day, barely a dent has been made. Now I'm starting to think of maple syrup as a cocktail ingredient.
I recall having a cocktail some time back with bourbon, maple syrup, and lemon juice. Seems to me that darker spirits would pair well (apple brandy, rye etc). But has anybody tried/made anything memorable with the stuff?
