    Bobby Heugel's Weekly Cocktail: The Maple Leaf

    The Maple Leaf

    2 oz Bourbon

    .75 oz Lemon Juice

    75 oz Maple Syrup

    Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a highball or Collins glass with crushed ice. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
    The Maple Leaf is a basic variation on the whiskey sour, but it has much more body. The noticeable maple syrup flavor also pairs perfectly with the bold oak flavors of the bourbon. Crushed ice helps the cocktail from having a cloyingly sweet texture, so go through the effort of crushing your ice if possible.

    Antique Maple Syrup Barrel for sale

    Wow!!! What a great barrel! This one is an old one. Handmade metal handles on chains are located on each side. I am not sure of its original use, but the auctioneer thought it was used in the making of maple syrup. The inside is metal lined (either tin or copper, not sure which) and there is a third chain on it possibly for hanging??? It is in great shape for its age.

    PDF Document: 2010 Quebec Maple Producer Report

    With an early start to the sugaring season that took some producers by surprise in late February, all signs pointed to a bumper crop of maple syrup in 2010. But the warm weather that hit in early April put a swift end to the run. According to official data published in June and confirmed by the Table filière acéricole du Québec, the Quebec maple syrup crop for 2010 is about average. The 43 million taps managed by Quebec's 7,400 maple businesses yielded a total volume of 88.1 million pounds of sap, less than the exceptional crop of 2009, which had been 109.4 million pounds. The production average in 2010 has been calculated at 2.04 pounds per tap, falling in below the 15-year average of 2.20 pounds per tap.
