Our cocktail lovely this week is an Old Vermont. We stumbled upon this one several years ago and since then have made it part of many a quiet evening. With all the fresh orange and lemon juice it’s practically a health food! *Wink, wink*
This recipe serves 2.
4 oz. gin
1 oz. Grade B maple syrup
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 oz. fresh orange juice
4 dashes Urban Moonshine maple bitters (See Note)
Tools: shaker, strainer
Shake all ingredients vigorously and strain into a chilled glasses.
Note: You can substitute Angostura bitters if you don’t have Urban Moonshine’s Maple Bitters, but do we love the extra little something the maple bitters give to the cocktail.
For a mocktail version, shake or stir together the lemon juice, orange juice, maple syrup, and bitters. Pour over ice and add sparkling water to finish.
