1 oz Rye Whiskey (1 1/2 oz Old Overholt 86°)
1 oz Oloroso Sherry (1 1/2 oz Lustau)
1 tsp Maple Syrup (1/4 oz)
1 dah Bittermens Mole Bitters (2 dash Angostura Cocoa)

Stir with ice and strain into a rocks glass with a large ice cube.
Two Thursdays ago, I was perusing the Kindred Cocktails database when I came across the Mapplethorpe which not only made me think of the controversial artist but reminded me of the Midtown given the whiskey, sherry, maple, and bitters structure. This drink crafted by New York City bartender Rafa Garcia Febles in 2015 began here with rye, nutty, and maple aromas. Next, a grape sip filled with maple's richness flowed into rye, earthy, and nutty flavors on the swallow with a maple finish.
