Best Use of Maple Syrup

From the 08/25/2010 edition

Bus-town Julep

Quick, what do you do with maple syrup? Pancakes? Boring. Our friends at Tip Top incorporate it in one of their delicious whiskey-based signature cocktails.

The Bus-town Julep shakes up whiskey, Ohio maple syrup, sweet and sour, and a little club soda. The tall glass gets topped off with a lime wedge and a cherry.

The end result is a tantalizingly tasty mix of three of my favorite flavors: sweet, sour and whiskey.
