Recipe: Knob Creek Smoked Maple Cocktails

Recently, we ran a review of the Knob Creek Smoked Maple Bourbon which Beam has offered forth this fall. We were also lucky enough to receive a recipe for an Old Fashioned for the upcoming holiday season courtesy of Iron Chef Michael Symon. It’s quite the tasty cocktail. However, not one to shy away from making a cocktail worthy of an Iron Chef, we also decided to take a stab at creating our own in celebration of the arrival of the 2014 NHL season. We don’t have the luxury of three celebrity judges to determine a winner, but leave your thoughts… or your own ideas… in the comments field!
