This cocktail is all about great bourbon and slow-melting ice, so find an ice cube mold that’s almost the size of the glass.

  • 1 demerara sugar cube
  • 4 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 1/4 oz. pure maple syrup
  • 1 large ice cube
  • 2 oz. bourbon, preferably Woodford Reserve
  • 1 strip lemon rind

Muddle the sugar cube, bitters, and maple syrup in a lowball glass. Add the ice cube. Slowly add 1 oz. of the bourbon and stir. Add the remaining bourbon and stir again. Squeeze the rind over the drink, rub it around the rim of glass, and serve.
