Oh, Lemon Maple. The most polarizing (beloved by many, maligned by a few) of our core flavors, this sour/sweet and herbaceous “adult lemonade” is actually incredibly versatile. Besides pairing well with a variety of food (pizza and Italian food, to picnic food, to Greek food [OPA!]), Lemon Maple makes an excellent component in a variety of mixed drinks. While my expertise with mixology is limited to dumping a couple of fingers of vodka into a pint of Booch and garnishing it with a flower from my backyard, we have friends who know what they’re doing… so we called one of them.


We teamed up mixologist Mulu’Nesh (@inthemixwithmulan) to put Lemon Maple to the test in a few Boochy takes on beloved cocktails. Mulu’Nesh is local to our hometown of San Diego, and has worked in some of our favorite restaurants around the city.  “One of the best parts of bartending is being able to create an amazing experience via cocktails. There’s definitely something for everyone. I still can’t believe I earn a living hanging out with people and making drinks.” -Mulu’Nesh
