Creative Ways To Use Maple Syrup At Special Events

If you're holding a special event and want to add a surprising twist to your party menu, incorporate maple syrup into it in creative ways. Make the sticky, sweet syrup the star of the menu, and have fun coming up with new and exciting ways to serve it. 

As versatile in both baking and cooking as it is tasty, maple syrup typically is made from the sap of sugar, red or black maple trees. Natural maple syrup contains a variety of nutrients, such as calcium and potassium, so it's a healthier option when compared to many other kinds of sweeteners.

The syrup also comes in a few different varieties, including golden, amber, dark, and very dark. The flavor of the syrup ranges from delicate to rich and robust, depending on what you prefer. 

Although maple syrup is usually associated with pancakes and waffles, it also complements a lot of other flavors, both sweet and savory. Incorporating it into your event menu you will challenge you to come up with creative dishes that will please guests of all ages. Maple syrup-inspired food is appropriate for a wide range of special events and occasions, including birthday parties, holiday celebrations, anniversary and graduation soirees, wedding receptions, and baby and bridal showers.

Here are a few more tips for using maple syrup creatively:

1. Cocktails 

Start the party off on a sweet note by presenting guests with cocktails infused with the sweetness of maple syrup. You can choose which drinks to serve according to the occasion or time of year. Some seasonal maple-flavored cocktails include pumpkin hot toddies, autumn rickeys, bourbon maple ciders, and old-fashioneds, in which the simple syrup is swapped out for the maple syrup. 

2. Salads 

Give salads a sweet touch by mixing up a dressing filled with balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, and any seasonings you'd like. You can top the salads with honey-roasted walnuts to complement the flavor of the syrup.

3. Roasted Root Vegetables 

Delight both meat-eaters and vegetarians alike with sweet and savory roasted root vegetables. As one idea, slide cut-up root vegetables, such as beets and sweet potatoes, and slide them onto skewers, brushing them with the maple syrup prior to grilling. This idea works especially well at outdoor events. The vegetables' earthy flavors work well with the rich maple syrup.

During a backyard BBQ, you can also mix some maple syrup into your favorite barbecue sauce as a creative touch.
