I remember class field trips as a child. We’d watch producers tap the trees, and then pour hot maple syrup over the snow. Our excitement was next level. I think that excitement stuck with me. 

Maple Season is here now, and I’m so excited to play with it again this season. It’s not just for pancakes and waffles. 

If you like the traditional whiskey sour — you will love this recipe. It has a maple twist instead of simple syrup, and it’s designed to please your palette.  I used Trites Maples for this recipe.

It’s so easy to make, and a perfect crowd pleaser! Shake a few up and impress your friends with rising egg whites and garnish. 



  • 1 1/2oz bourbon or Canadian whiskey
  • 1oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1oz local maple syrup
  • 1 egg white


Fill shaker with ice, add all ingredients and shake, shake, shake!!!! Make sure to shake long enough that the egg whites become frothy. Pour over fresh ice in preferred cocktail glass. Garnish with lemon zest.


If you prefer a more boozy flavour add 1/2oz whiskey. More sour, use 1/2oz maple. More sweet, use 1/2oz lemon juice.
