“People always ask me, ‘I like whiskey, I like old fashioneds, what else should I drink?’ Why mess with what you like?” beverage educator Tiffanie Barriere says. To add a little oomph to your usual without straying too far, she suggests experimenting with the buttery sweetness of maple syrup. 

TLP recommends Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon Barrel Aged Pure Maple Syrup.
