Bourbon, beer and maple. Need I say more? We just can’t possibly keep this sweet cocktail recipe to ourselves, not with The Nairobi Beer Festival just one day away! The combination of the sweet maple syrup complimented with the spice of the red chiles gives this cocktail the deserved kick. The cocktail is also sweet, sexy with a fiery twist.
