Maple Beam and Cream Cocktail is a maple and bourbon cocktail, 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.
You probably have heard of the old-fashioned and the white Russian. But what if you combined the best of both cocktails to create a new one? In this maple bourbon cocktail, I did just that. Lovely Jim Beam Bourbon gets a gentle kick of sweetness from a little maple syrup and then, a soft float of heavy cream tops this new bourbon cocktail.
If you like bourbon cocktails and a good old-fashioned, this maple bourbon cocktail is a perfect choice. With only three must-have ingredients, bourbon, maple syrup, and heavy cream, this cocktail is very easy to make!
Even though maple bourbon whiskey has been discontinued by Jim Beam, you can still make this delicious cocktail by using a little more maple syrup with your favorite bourbon.
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 cocktail if you drink it too fast!
