Maple is most definitely one of the hottest flavors this fall, threatening to dethrone pumpkin spice. Not only is maple a hot ingredient for many food dishes, it can also add sweet excitement to a favorite cocktail.

Courtesy of our friends at Runamok Maple, this recipe for a maple-influenced Cuidado—which means “caution” in Spanish.

The Merquen Infused Maple Syrup provides some chili pepper kick, balanced by the sweetness of the apricot jam and enhanced by the ginger beer. If you want to start slowly, start with a teaspoon of Merquen and taste before adding more.
