The Nor’easter is a perfect cocktail for those winter months on the horizon – with a hint of maple, spicy ginger, along with the welcome warmth of bourbon. Named after the infamous icy storms that wreak havoc in the Northeast. This very simple cocktail is a perfect addition to add to your rotation these coming autumn and winter months. The key to making a great Nor’easter is using a quality bourbon, and real maple syrup.
2 oz. bourbon
1/2 oz. of fresh lime juice
1/2 oz. of maple syrup
2 oz. ginger beer
1 lime wheel for garnish
Pour bourbon, lime juice, and maple syrup into a cocktail shaker, then add ice. Shake for ten seconds then strain into low-ball glass over fresh ice. Top with ginger beer, and add a lime wheel garnish.
