Maple Syrup Liqueur

Green Mountain distillers has announced that they're going to be Vermont's favorite drink by making a Maple Syrup Liqueur.

The spirit is made from organic maple syrup (not that Mrs. Butterworth crap) and their in-house organic vodka, which is made from Vermont spring water. They're obviously pushing for "State Alcohol" designation.

In honor of this, I made up a drink that is purely for the purposes of this blog and I have not tried to actually make it as a) I don't have any of their Maple Syrup Liqueur and b) I'm afraid.

The French Toast
1 Part Maple Syrup Liqueur
1 Part Vanilla Vodka
1 Part Bailey's Irish Cream
1/2 Part Goldschlager

Pour all items in to an ice-filled shaker and shake vigorously. Strain in to a martini glass and top with a dash of cinnamon.

I have some maple syrup liqueur that was made in New Hampshire, so I tried your recipe, more or less. I don't really like Goldschlager so I left it out. It tastes basically like I used butterscotch schnapps. It's good, but I would cut back on the vodka a little.

The Goldschlager gives it some Cinnamon flavor that makes the drink. You can't make the drink different from the recipe then say how to change it!

mmmm...butterscotch schnapps...mmm...oatmeal cookie
