“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
Lucy Maud Montgomery
1 1/2 oz bourbon
3 oz good quality sweet cider
1/4 oz lingonberry syrup
1/4 oz lemon juice
Run a lemon slice around the edge of a short (old fashioned or rocks) glass. Rim glass with maple sugar. In an ice-filled shaker shake the bourbon, cider, lemon juice and lingonberry syrup. Strain into ice-filled glass. Garnish with fresh cranberries.
