Jonathan Zapf's Maker's Mark creation came as the result of trial and error.
Zapf, a bartender at Brewski's Steak House, 6240 W. Bluemound Rd., finally settled on this concoction, which he says works for both men and women, before or after dinner.
"It's probably not something to enjoy with a steak," he says, "but would work well before your meal and works well as a "dessert drink," too."
The cranberry and caramel make for a sweet contrast to the subtle bite of bourbon.
