6 ounces (3/4 cup) bourbon or your whiskey of choice
4 ounces (1/2 cup) birch syrup or maple syrup
2 ounces (1/4 cup) dry sherry
2 drops bitters if using maple syrup
Freshly fallen snow or shaved ice
In a pitcher, mix together the whiskey, syrup, sherry, and bitters if using. Chill thoroughly.
Before serving, fill small highball glasses (or half-pint jelly jars) with snow, packing it down lightly. Drizzle in the cold whiskey mixture, adding as much or as little as desired. Serve with a small spoon.
