Maple Old Fashioned Cocktail

An old favorite with a nice Fall flavor!
Here's a recipe I found that originally called for maple syrup instead of Maple Crown Royal.

I've been loving Maple Crown Royal... but had to find some new ways to use it, though drinking it "neat" doesn't suck.

Makes 1

1 jigger maple crown royal
1 jigger fresh orange juice
A squeeze of fresh lemon juice (optional... you could skip this)
4 dashes of Angostura bitters
1/2 orange wheel
2 jiggers bourbon
1 1/2 ounces chilled seltzer
Maraschino cherry for a garnish

In a rocks glass, combine the maple Crown Royal with the orange juice, lemon juice and bitters. Add the orange wheel and lightly muddle. Add the bourbon and stir well. Fill the glass with ice and top with the chilled seltzer.
