  • 2 oz Jack Daniel's Gentleman Jack
  • 1/2 oz Maple Butter
  • 3 Orange Peels
  • 3 dashes Angostura Bitters


  1. Grab a mixing glass and add 2 peels of Orange and maple butter. Press the orange peel with a muddler to extract as much oils as possible.

  2. Fill your mixing glass 3/4 of the way with ice (Do not be shy with this! Lots of ice is necessary). Pour Gentleman Jack into mixing glass and stir well (approximately 35-45 seconds).

  3. Strain into rocks glass over one large ice cube. Zest with last remaining orange peel.

Recipe Notes

It's all about technique here to balance the spirit and water ratio. Note that the cocktail will ultimately depend on how sweet the Maple Butter is, but BE MINDFUL. Put 1/3 oz to start and add more to your preference.
