Whiskey Maple Syrup

I am obsessed with syrup! I want to eat it, I want to make diy syrup, I even have learned how to tap a maple tree and collect sap so I can make the real stuff! (Coming soon to S4Y!)

I kind of remind myself of that scene from the movie Elf. ..
Just call me Buddy!

Needless to say, I have been going through bottles and bottles of maple syrup lately... I'll put syrup on just about anything.

The exciting news is I have a quick and easy DIY syrup recipe to share. ..that includes whiskey! What could be better than Syrup + Whiskey + Bacon?! Pair this whiskey maple syrup with some delicious bacon (or spaghetti) and your day is made!

It's so easy, my husband and I actually made a huge batch and gave it to our friends and family for Christmas a few years ago. It was a hit!   

What You'll Need:

1 cup water
1 and 1/3 cups sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp Whiskey (I used Bushmills)
1 tsp maple extract or imitation maple flavoring

yields about 1.5 cups of syrup!

 How You'll Do It:

In a saucepan, whisk all ingredients together and bring to a simmer over medium high heat. Whisk occasionally and simmer for 20-25 minutes until syrup has thickened.

Serve warm or store in an airtight container in the fridge!
