Just in time for the weekend…

my Maple Martini  recipe!

Nutty, maple goodness…in a glass.

I start by rimming the glass with 

a little crushed, pure maple candy,

which I found at Wold Market.

Dip the rim into

vermont style maple syrup and then the crushed candy

pieces, freeze. Here’s the 

Simple Maple Syrup recipe for the martini and it really is simple.

* * *


1/4th cup vanilla sugar

(TIP:  While you can purchase vanilla sugar…

I make my own, using the leftover vanillabean pods

from my baking projects. Pop the pods into a sugar canister and let them

hangout for a few days. Remove the pods and your granulated sugar

will be infused with vanilla goodness!)

1/2 cup water

1/2 teaspoon of maple extract


Method ~

Simmer the sugar and water on the stove top,

stirring occassionaly, just until the sugar is dissolved.

stir in the maple extract, chill.

(Note: You will have leftovers!

So Maple Martinis on repeat!)

And now for the Maple Martini!

1 tablespoon simple maple syrup

1 shot good vodka

1.5 tablespoons apple cider

splash of Grand Marnier


Combine all of the ingredients in a shaker and

give it a go! 

Pour mixture into that chilled glass, rimmed with maple sugar. 

Garnish with one of my maple bar bitesif you like. I told you I had ‘adult’

plans for these bites!
