Grown Up Syrups
Slice butter into 1/4-inch slices. In a small saucepan, heat orange juice, sugar and orange rind, on low temperature stirring often for 5 minutes. Increase heat and bring to boil. The mixture will thicken and become syrupy. Whisk the mixture and add the butter, piece by piece. When thoroughly blended, remove from heat and stir in Grand Marnier. Serve immediately.
Combine the maple syrup, cinnamon, clove and orange peel in a small sauce pan. Heat over medium high heat to a simmer then remove from the heat and allow the syrup and aromatics to steep for 20 minutes. Strain the syrup through a fine mesh sieve into a small saucepan.
Gently warm the syrup over low heat. Add the butter and Makers Mark Bourbon and stir until well blended. Serve warm. Makes 1-1/4 cups.

The inspiration is said to have been the 75mm Howitzer field gun that the French and Americans wielded on their tanks in World War 1.
Delighting cocktail lovers since it was first published in the Jerry Thomas Bartenders Guide in 1862.
