Justin Taylor’s Four-Winds-of-Change cocktail. Oliver Harden photo

• 1 oz. Shelter Point Distillery Whisky
• 0.75 oz. lemon juice
• 0.5 oz. clove-infused maple syrup*
• 3 dashes of Bittered Sling Gastown Bitters
• 2 oz. Four Winds Pale Ale

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass. Add ice and stir for 15 seconds. Strain over fresh ice into an Old Fashioned glass. Garnish with apple slices.

*Clove-infused maple syrup: Using a mortar and pestle, gently crack 25–30 whole cloves. Add to a saucepan and place over medium heat. When fragrant, add a cup of water and stir. Add one cup of pure maple syrup. Stir to dissolve. Cook for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Strain into a bottle, and refrigerate for later use.
