Maple Cream Cocktail

Maple Cream Cocktail
After a long afternoon writing Christmas cards and getting the kids to write some of their own, what better way to unwind with your loved one than over a nice hot cup of steaming maple cream... with whiskey!  We usually don't keep much liquor in the house, but influenced by the holiday season, my husband came home with a bottle of Crown Royal Maple whiskey the other day.  I was sitting at the table with him after he poured himself a glass and every time he took a sip all I could smell was maple syrup, which I love, so I was intrigued.  I tried a few sips straight up, and although delicious, I knew it would make an even better cocktail mixed with milk, cream and pure maple syrup.  And since it is freezing outside, why not make it a warm drink as well?  Trust me, this creation is a delicious way to unwind, relax and taste all the best the season has to offer. Happy sipping!!

Maple Cream Cocktail

1 C. organic milk (or soy milk)
1/4 C. organic half and half
2 T. pure maple syrup
1/2 C. (4 oz.) maple flavored whiskey

In a small saucepan, heat the milk and cream until it barely starts to simmer, whisking constantly to prevent a film from forming.  Stir in the maple syrup and remove from heat.  Add in the whiskey, stir to combine and pour into two separate mugs.  Enjoy!!!
