Maple Clemenceau
1 portion


  • A cocktail shaker and strainer
  • A coupette style glass
  • 40ml Cognac
  • 10ml Cointreau
  • 5ml pure maple syrup (preferably dark syrup for its robust taste)
  • 25ml lemon Juice
  • Maple sugar for garnish
  • Lemon wedge for garnish
  • Ice for shaking


  1. Place maple sugar in a bowl or tray and spread evenly across the bottom
  2. Use a wedge of lemon to moisten the rim of your cocktail glass. Dip the glass into the maple sugar until it sticks to the lemon juice and creates a sugar rim.
  3. Place cognac, Cointreau, maple syrup and lemon juice into a shaker with some ice. Shake until the shaker is frosty to the touch.
  4. Pour the cocktail into your glass, using a strainer to keep the ice in the shaker. Enjoy!

This cognac-based cocktail is a sophisticated tipple that’s sure to impress guests. Brandy and citrus flavours make for a classic combination in this quick and easy cocktail recipe, further enhanced by the addition of sweet maple syrup and complete with a maple sugar rim!

More about maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple spread comes from the sap of the maple tree that’s all.
