Maple and Woodward 

/// The Stand 

“This is our signature cocktail, along with our best-seller,” says manager Trisha Patterson. “It’s a great rendition of everyone’s old-time favorite, the Manhattan. The cocktail represents The Stand and what we ‘stand’ for (pun intended). Woodward whiskey and maple syrup fit just perfectly for The Stand because our establishment is on the corner of Maple and Woodward, also because the ingredients support local brands [Valentine Distilling in Ferndale and maple syrup from Michigan]. We always focus on using local brands and ingredients behind the bar as well as in our kitchen.”

Ingredients:

2 ounces Valentine’s Woodward Whiskey
¼ ounce Michigan maple syrup
4 dashes of orange bitters

Directions:

Combine all ingredients into a mixer glass. Add ice and stir (30 rotations). Strain into a rocks glass, garnish with an orange peel.
