The Backstory: Morley’s Hard Maple Old-Fashioned
Many thanks to Jon Morley for sharing this awesome maple cocktail recipe and photo on Facebook. “Lacking” the necessary simple syrup or sugar cubes in the traditional Old-Fashioned, Jon made the ultimate upgrade to Primal Woods Pure Maple Syrup. As Jon said, “I didn’t have any simple syrup so I was like, wth.. Primal Woods! It’s not just for breakfast!!” You gotta love it when the plan comes together!
Morley’s Hard Maple Old-Fashioned – Preparation
- Start with a whiskey ice ball.. (or a large single hand crafted ice cube)
Add a teaspoon or more of Primal Woods Pure Maple Syrup

Plus a few dashes of Angostura bitters

Stir the mix
- Twist an orange peel and rim the glass
- Add Luxardo Maraschino Cherries
- Kick back and enjoy! 👍🥃
The Gist of Morley’s Hard Maple Old-Fashioned
As Jon put it more eloquently than I would have, “The star of the drink is your fabulous Elixir! I will never use simple syrup or a sugar cube again.”
A maple cocktail for the ages, and while I might be a bit biased, Primal Woods Pure Maple Syrup is the best for this application and many others!
With warm regards, let Morley’s Hard Maple Old-Fashioned warm your innards,
