  • 1 oz maple syrup
  • 1 oz lime juice the juice from 1 lime
  • 1 1/2" piece ginger minced
  • 4 oz bourbon
  • 2 oz ginger ale
  • slice lime


  • Combine syrup, lime juice, minced ginger, bourbon and ginger ale in a cocktail shaker then give it a good rattle.
  • If possible, let mixture chill in the freezer for 2–4 minutes, until very cold. Pour in a glass packed with ice then garnish with a fresh lime wedge, if desired.


A traditional nor’easter cocktail does not come with a sugar-rimmed glass, but we thought it was fun and it tasted good too!
