maple whiskey pecans snack

We like this idea for boozy winter snacks for upcoming parties like the Super Bowl, Oscars watching or Valentine’s Day. We found this Tap 357 Maple Whisky Pecan recipe which is a perfect taste blend of whiskey and maple. We don’t usually support flavored spirits but this is a good use. A sip for you and a sip for the recipe.

 Maple Whisky Pecans

2 T Tap 357 Maple Rye Whisky

1 T honey

1/4 cup brown sugar

Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Spread onto a baking sheet and bake for 1 hour at 250 degrees, stirring the pecans every 20 minutes.

Tap 357 (81% proof) is a premium small-batch Canadian whisky that marries rye whiskies that have been cask-aged for either 3, 5 or 7 years with pure maple syrup tapped at the first hint of spring. Master Blender Michel Marcil takes the naturally complementary flavors of fine, earthy rye and rich, true maple and transforms them into an elegantly smooth spirit with a delicate sweetness that is subtle, not sugary.  Thanks to skillful blending (and because Marcil has eschewed chill-filtering), neither flavor is allowed to dominate. The finished result is a layered, nuanced and rounded spirit that’s great savored straight, added to creative cocktails or used in delectable recipes.
