We all have our own version of the nightcap. For me, its 4 a.m. avocado sandwiches from Moonstruck (wait, that’s not a nightcap). But typically, your last drink of the evening should put you to bed without further ruining your morning.
InnLW12—the most recent venture from the owners of Double Seven and newest resident of Little W12th St—believes they have created such a cocktail.
The Maple Leaf.
1 and ½ ounce Whiskey, ½ ounce fresh lemon juice and ½ ounce maple syrup. Shake, serve rocks and garnish with a lemon.
The whiskey will ease you into REM while the maple syrup makes you long for a morning you actually want to wake up to.
Final Word: With such close proximity to Tenjune, take home a Maple Leaf rather than that flirty 21-year-old. We’ll all feel better in the morning.
