Owner: John Bourdeau

Drink Name: Maple Farm

1.5 oz Viscaya rum

¾ oz fresh lime juice

¾ oz. dark amber pure real maple syrup

2 dashes of Fee Brothers black walnut bitters

Shake. Serve up in martini glass. Garnish with nutmeg “for a fall flavor.”

“It’s a warming, fall flavor,” said Bourdeau. “Between the walnuts and nutmeg, you barely taste the rum. It’s a brown sugar flavor, but not too sweet. It tastes like a maple daiquiri.”
