    If I'm not mistaken, you'll need to shake it to get the maple syrup thoroughly mixed in. Stirring works with "thinner" liquids (spirits, light mixers, etc), but with thicker ingredients, such as fruit juices, and definitely a syrup as thick as maple syrup, you'll need to shake it.

    The great thing about an Old Fashioned is that you can use any base spirit and make it work beautifully. My one question about this recipe (which sounds delicious) is why you'd shake instead of stir? Even in the photo, it looks like a stirred drink.

    This is NOT a Maple Old Fashioned. Old Fashioneds are made with either Bourbon or Whiskey.

    Grade B Maple syrup - cheaper and more flavorful. If you've got a spiced up dark rum (like Kraken), use a less hearty syrup...

    I made this drink with Ron Rancado Black and some real Vermont maple syrup. I enjoyed the balance of sweet maple and the Angostura bitter. My wife said it reminded her of iced tea. Good stuff.
