Looking to warm up as the weather cools down? The Campfire Sling is a variant on the Old Fashioned cocktail, using maple syrup instead of simple syrup created by Kevin Felker at the Water Grill in downtown Los Angeles. Garnish with a flamed orange peel to add a touch of smokiness that makes you feel like you’ve sipping the cocktail in your favorite camp chair around a fire.
