Maple Lemon Whiskey Cocktail - A Fall inspired cocktail recipe using Root Shoot Spirits Whiskey

Fall in Colorado is usually one for the books, and the best way to enjoy the leaves changing is with a Maple Lemon cocktail using some of Root Shoot Spirits' American Single Malt Whiskey (50% ABV). This award winning whiskey incorporates 100% Colorado-grown and malted grain, sourced from the 5th generation family run Olander Farms and malted by the sustainability-minded craft maltsters. Root Shoot Whiskey is delicious served neat, on the rocks or made into a perfect warming cocktail. The drinking experience starts with aromas of cobbler and honey granola. Upon first sip, clean flavors of alpine florals breeze across the palate, and the whiskey finishes with an alpenglow of rich pastry, faint cocoa dust and long, lingering bright-yet-spicy flavors.
