Maker's Marks the Spot

I’ve recently become somewhat of a bourbon drinker. It has taken time and it is surely an acquired taste, but Don Draper has had his effect on me.


Because I’m still new to the world of whiskey, I like to experiment with mixing. I’ve sweetened the taste of Maker’s Mark by adding my favorite soda, ginger ale, and also maraschino cherry juice.

Maker's Mark Cocktail with Ingredients

Ingredients:

1 1/2 parts Maker’s Mark

1 Part ginger ale

1 teaspoon of maraschino cherry juice

1 maraschino cherry

Ice

Directions:

Fill low ball glass with ice. Pour in the Maker’s Mark. Pour in the ginger ale. Add the teaspoon of maraschino cherry juice. Stir the drink with a stir stick. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.

Tip: If you’re looking to be fancy you can easily make your own maraschino cherries. Recipe here.

Enjoy!
