Bourbon Maple Syrup Recipe
This infused bourbon maple syrup recipe is a sweet, classic maple syrup with a unique flavor profile AND a special kick.
Making your own infused syrup at home is the best way to get a flavorful product with customizable ingredients, especially if you decide to infuse your syrup with your favorite plant’s psychoactive properties.
The truly unique ingredient to this recipe is the infused butter made in your LĒVO infusion machine.
With your LĒVO machine, you can make extra infused butter to have enough for the syrup recipe, but then you can spread some additional butter on your hot waffles or pancakes! The combination of the infused butter with the bourbon will give your (special) syrup a unique depth of flavor.
You won’t have to use much of this syrup to get wonderful flavors and infused health benefits on your pancakes or waffles. The flavor is strong, and the syrup will pour perfectly over a variety of items. You will want to save the leftover syrup in the refrigerator to enjoy it every morning. All you have to do is warm it up in the microwave, or just spoon it out of a lidded mason jar if you’re not a fan of microwaves.
How To Enjoy Your Infused Syrup
Don’t be tempted to use this syrup on any old frozen waffle or pancake. This infused syrup deserves to be served on fresh pancakes and waffles made from scratch.
While making your other breakfast items from scratch is some additional work up front, you won’t regret the extra time in the kitchen when that first bite of homemade goodness hits your mouth. Another benefit to making your own waffles and pancakes is the inclusion of infused butter in those recipes too.
People use maple syrup on many unique items besides waffles and pancakes. This syrup will go well over sausage links, bacon, oatmeal, or classic chicken and waffles.
Making Your Infused Syrup
This recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of infused butter. If you’ve not made that yet, go ahead and get your LĒVO II or LĒVO C ready to go. Here’s our quick recipe for infusing your butter, if you need a reference.
This special syrup has such a rich aroma and flavor. The combination of maple syrup, vanilla, and bourbon creates complementary layers of flavors. Then, the addition of terpenes in the infused butter adds richness to the syrup as well.
If you infuse your butter with a LĒVO infusion machine, you can adapt the recipe for the desired potency or try out different strains in your butter. Strains have different properties that affect health benefits, taste, and aroma. So, experimenting to find your favorite strain for infused butter (that you want to use for this syrup) is part of the fun in the kitchen.
This syrup is sure to be rich and creamy as compared to more watery store-bought versions. Every bite of your pancake or waffle that has just a little of this syrup on it will feel warm and buttery as it goes down. The bourbon compliments the sweetness of the maple syrup, while the butter also adds a creamy richness.
How to Serve Your Syrup
You will want to dunk waffle pieces into this syrup straight out of the pan. If you want to store some of your infused syrup for later, pour it into a sealable glass container like a Mason jar, and keep it in the refrigerator to enjoy it for up to 2-3 weeks.
