For a talented mixologist, nothing is more satisfying than looking at an image of one of the cocktails he’s tied up. It’s called the pleasure of getting the work done. That’s the moment of truth. Either you did your job with passion or you were just there for the paid hours. This is a great riff on a classic Old Fashioned.

10 ml Maple syrup
