Spiced Bourbon & Beer Maple Martini

Food Network

We love this festive, zesty cocktail from the Food Network. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and spicy!

1 cup chilled bourbon
1/4 cup chilled dark beer like Negro Modelo
1/4 cup chilled pure maple syrup
Ice cubes
1 whole nutmeg
4 small dried red chiles, such as japones, rinsed and patted dry

Combine the bourbon, beer and maple syrup in a martini shaker. Fill the shaker with ice cubes. Cover and shake about 8 times. Strain the drink equally into 4 large chilled martini glasses. Using a nutmeg grater, grate about 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg over each martini. Add a chile to each martini and stir to blend. Serve very cold.
