Low Salicylate Maple Whisky Sour

by | May 1, 2022

A born and bred Scotsman, Dan is partial to the odd whisky. While his preference is for it to be served neat, he won’t say no when I suggest a mixed version – personally, I need a little somethin’-somethin’ to make his tipple of choice more palatable. A zingy compromise for this malty, smokey spirit is to add some citric acid along with a little maple syrup. Shaken then poured over ice, what you’re left with is a wonderfully refreshing drink, perfect for cocktail hour.
