Make a Maple-Flavored Concoction
Everyone loves to merrymake every now and again, especially during Maple Madness. If you've thought about making a maple-infused adult beverage, now is the perfect time! Maple syrup pairs especially well with whiskey and vodka. Here's how to infuse liquor with maple syrup:
- Buy an inexpensive bottle of whiskey or vodka (or both).
- Add a heaping amount of Ben's Maple Syrup to a half-gallon wide-mouth mason jar (preferably one with an airtight lid).
- Add in a few cinnamon sticks or slices of cooked bacon for added flavor.
- Next, pour your booze of choice over your ingredients to begin the infusion.
- Store on your countertop or on a shelf for three days to a week
- Once it has infused, sip it, pour it over ice, or make a maple syrup-infused drink concoction for you and your friends.
