While doing some research for an upcoming cocktail recipe (its going to be good, keep an eye out) I came across the Stone Fence cocktail in Meehan’s Bartender Manual. Full disclosure, I have never heard of this cocktail before but there’s no way I can pass up making a new (to me) cocktail while I also happen to have all of the ingredients on hand. It seemed like fate.
Having zero experience with this drink I went by the book right down to the prescribed apple fan garnish, though I did use spicy maple syrup for a little extra kick. This is a really nice seasonal beverage if you’re looking for something a little different.
Stone Fence (Meehan’s Bartender Manual)

2oz. bourbon (Rowan’s Creek)
0.25oz. Grade A dark amber maple syrup (Runamok smoked chili maple syrup)

Combine in a chilled highball glass, fill with ice and garnish with apple fan.
