Drink Type: Cocktail
Place the mint leaves and maple syrup in a tall glass then squish it all around with a spoon for 20-30 seconds until you can smell that good minty smell. Cut the lime in half getting rid of the seeds as well as you can. Squeeze the juice out from both halves into the glass then drop one half into the glass. Pour in the whisky and stir. Add crushed ice then top off the mixture with ginger ale. Garnish with a sprig of mint and enjoy! Vive la Canada!
