Adam Wilson of Beretta in San Francisco created the Ginger Sour using SKYY Vodka's ginger-infused vodka and it is a great use of a great vodka. If you love ginger and ginger vodka, this is going to be one of your favorite new cocktails.

This is a simple cocktail that shows off the vodka's flavor wonderfully - sort of new liquor meets an old-school drink. The ginger, maple, and lemon are excellent together, creating a sweet, zingy spice offset by sour taste. There is a lot going on in the drink, but when it comes together, it is an amazing experience.

If you do not have maple syrup on hand, a rich simple syrup or dark agave nectar will do fine, though they are not quite the same as a truly rich maple here.
