The Nor’easter cocktail is the unofficial signature drink of the Flinner household – probably because it only contains a few ingredients that we usually have on hand, and the simple ratio of 4:2:1:1 is easy to remember. The bourbon base is made merry and bright with the addition of maple syrup and ginger beer – creating a cocktail that’s very approachable and perfect for whiskey enthusiasts and cocktail novices alike. I love serving Nor’easters at holiday gatherings and the extra ginger beers are a perfect non-alcoholic beverage to offer to friends who don’t drink.

Since the drink is quite simple, I love glamming things up by serving it in beautifully cut lowball glasses, and over time I’ve amassed quite the collection of glassware. I especially love these single old-fashioned glasses that we received as wedding presents and these double old-fashioneds which have a plaid design and are appropriately festive for the holiday season.

NOR’EASTER COCKTAIL
Makes 2!

Ingredients.
4 oz bourbon (We usually have Bulleit or Buffalo Trace on hand and use that.)
2 oz ginger beer (I like Trader Joe’s ginger beer best.)
1 oz 100% pure maple syrup
1 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
2 lime wheels
8-10 ice cubes

Method.
1. Pour bourbon, maple syrup and lime juice in a small pitcher.
2. Divide the ice between two lowball glasses, and pour the cocktail evenly between the glasses. Top each glass with 1 oz of ginger beer and give it a little stir. Float a lime wheel on the surface and serve!
