Libation Creation: Santa's Special Sauce
This cocktail was inspired by a delicious drink called the Maple that I enjoyed one night at Farley Bar in Sausalito. It is the perfect wintery treat to warm you on a cold night. It even appeals to non-Bourbon drinkers since its sweet and refreshing. I made this recently for a holiday party and it was a total hit. It works well served in a pitcher and the recipe can easily be multiplied for a crowd. This drink is guaranteed to make your spirits bright! I mean, how else do you think Santa gets through Christmas night? Ho Ho Ho...

3/4 oz maple syrup
