If you are entertaining during the holidays, you may want a signature cozy cocktail for your guests that echo the season.  Maple Beam & Cream Cocktail is a cocktail I created that will be your new fall favorite.  It has a soft maple flavor, a float of cream, and a dusting of fresh nutmeg that is perfect for sipping by the fireplace.

Just like other cream cocktails like the Grasshopper and White Russian, this cream and maple cocktail is a very easy sip.  So, beware and take extra care!  You could be tipsy after drinking only one, if you drink it too fast!

This delicious maple cocktail is based upon the cream cocktails of the 1930’s and has a typical 1 to 1/2 ratio of spirit to cream.  Although this recipe is for a single serving, you can easily scale it for two servings or for a gathering of many.

You can make Maple Beam and Cream 1960’s style by floating a layer of cream on top of the bourbon. Or, you can make a batch 1930’s style by blending the ingredients together and the cocktail can be poured over ice for guests as blended sip.

Whichever style you choose, you and your guests will be happy to try this delicious cream & maple cocktail!
