Sometimes you need a drink and you don't feel like putting a whole lot of effort into making it. That's when a cocktail with just two ingredients will really come in handy.
While going through our liquor cabinet and seeing which bottles a nearly empty, I found some Captain Morgan and some Butterscotch Schnapps. I'm not a big fan of rum and I'm not even sure what schnapps are, so I would never drink either of these on their own. Mix them together, thought, and it makes a fine drink.
Contrary to the name of this cocktail, there is no maple syrup involved. But you won't be able to tell after you down this shot. With the flavor that this drink has, you could have one with pancakes for breakfast or for dessert at the end of the night, no judgment here.
