MAPLE BOURBON // First Frost


maple_bourbon_3 Walking out my front door this morning I heard that familiar, scratching, scraping noise...And then witnessed the first windshield scrape of the season. And began to weep.

It's still September.

This calls for a stiff drink.


I love using maple as a sweetener -- it's pure and natural, and a much better alternative to agave (which is actually just as processed as corn syrup, gasp!). It's vegan, low-glycemic, and just freaking delicious! Also -- Maple Seltzer? Talk about specialty food, am-i-right?? Lightly sweet and super delicious. Can't find any in your grocery stores? No problem, just use plain seltzer and add a bit more pure maple syrup.


The taste ends up being not too strong, and not too sweet. It's juuuuuuust right. Good for those mixed-drink-ers and on-the-rocks-sippers alike.
