This Maple Cinnamon Whiskey Sour cocktail recipe is SO simple to make and ideal for winter months! Sub apple cider for mocktail version. 


Units Scale
  • 2 oz bourbon whiskey (1/4 cup) (apple cider for mocktail version)
  • 1 oz orange juice (2 TBS), from one orange
  • 1 TBS maple syrup (use 1/2 TBS in mocktail version, as cider can be pretty sweet)
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Rosemary and a cinnamon stick to serve optional (see notes for sugared rosemary)


  1. Fill a shaker or sealable jar with some ice cubes. Add bourbon (or apple cider), orange juice, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Shake to chill, about 15 seconds.
  2. If desired, rub a piece of the orange rind around the rim of a chilled rocks glass to add some additional aroma. Strain the cocktail mixture into the glass. Garnish with cinnamon stick and rosemary.


To make the sugared rosemary pictured here, simply wet a sprig under some water and roll it in a few TBS of organic cane sugar. Let dry before adding to your drink.
