If you're looking for something different to do with your whiskey, instead of the typical whiskey and Coke, or just on the rocks, try the Nor'easter for a great flavor where you can still taste your whiskey.
2 ounces of your choice of whiskey
1/2 ounce pure maple syrup
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
Pour ingredients into a shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into an ice-filled rocks glass. Top with ginger beer and garnish with a slice of lime.
