This warmly spiced bourbon martini is everything we want in a fall cocktail.
When fall rolls around, we retire the spritzers and rosés in favor of warmly spiced cocktails that feel just right for the season. Enter this Spiced Maple Bourbon Martini! With oaky bourbon, fizzy and roasty-flavored dark beer, sweet maple syrup and fresh nutmeg, it’s got great flavor for the season. A little smokey, a little sweet, and a touch spicy – what more could you want in a fall cocktail?
Since bourbon is the standout flavor in this drink, make sure you use one that you really like! We love Bulleit brand and W.L. Weller, but you can choose your favorite. Modelo Negra is a great widely-available dark beer to use for this cocktail – you can even add extra to your batch if you want more fizz!
The best part about this bourbon martini? It’s incredibly easy to make, but it proves to be quite a sophisticated drink. Serve these at a dinner party to really amp up the refined feel – or just sip it by the fire and feel like your most fancy fall self.
