I found a cocktail for you that uses a similar type of syrup called Maple Syrup, which has a sweet and rich flavor just like Demerara syrup. The "Maple Brown Derby" is a cold, alcoholic cocktail that includes Maple Syrup, Grapefruit Juice, Angostura Bitters, and Bourbon. It has a rating of 2.9 out of 5 and is served in a cocktail glass.
