  1. Put some maple syrup on a saucer and put some sugar on a second saucer.
  2. Dip the rim of a double old-fashioned glass in the syrup, then dip it in the sugar. Once the rim is all coated in sugary goodness, add a few ice cubes, and set aside.
  3. Now, it's time to get shakin'. Add the bourbon, maple syrup and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and do what you do best: Shake it.
  4. Pour the drink into the prepared glass. Add a splash of ginger beer -- I like a little sparkle in there. Stop making fun of me.
  5. Peel a small piece of lemon rind using a vegetable peeler. Twist the rind and toss it in the glass. Enjoy!

Cook’s Note

You can also rim the glass with a lemon wedge before dipping it in the sugar and serve the drink straight up in a martini glass.
