Life lesson: The cocktails that taste unassuming can sometimes pack the most punch. This is one of those cocktails. This very simple drink showcases the versatility of maple syrup. The sweetness doesn't overpower, but definitely shines bright in this citrusy cocktail.
Makes 1 drink
1 1/2 ounces gin
1/2 ounce maple syrup
1/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/4 ounce fresh orange juice
2 to 3 dashes of orange bitters
Combine all of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with plenty of ice. Vigorously shake the drink until combined, then strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with sliced orange peel.
