You’ll want to use a good-quality ginger beer rather than ginger ale, whose sugariness will overpower the subtle maple flavor. Think spicy winter tang, not summery sweetness.

Yield: 1 serving

1½ ounces straight bourbon
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
4½ ounces ginger beer

In a highball glass, combine the bourbon, lime juice and maple syrup, stirring gently to dissolve the syrup. Add the ginger beer and some ice, then garnish with a slice of lime.
