Old Fashioned Bourbon Maple Popcorn with Pecans

8 cups popped popcorn

1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans

1/3 cup real maple syrup

1 tbsp bourbon

2 tbsp butter

1 tbsp orange zest

1 dash bitters

Place popcorn and pecans in large bowl.

In small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine maple syrup, bourbon and butter; bring to boil. Cook, swirling pan, 3-5 minutes, or until mixture thickens to corn syrup consistency. Stir in orange zest and bitters.

Drizzle maple syrup mixture over popcorn; toss to evenly coat. Cool completely and serve.

Tips: Substitute bourbon with rye or whiskey. For “mocktail” popcorn, substitute with non-alcoholic bourbon or whiskey.
