Suggestions for cocktails to make with maple vodka

We've got a bottle of this vodka
produced from 100% maple sap and we need some ideas for delicious cocktail experiments.

The vodka is not super sweet but it has a distinct maple flavor, especially when served over ice. We're enjoying it on the rocks, but would like some ideas for variations - especially those that don't go too heavily into "mudslide" territory. The one recipe
on the company's website just looks weird, like it would be fighting against the maple flavor. I don't want to add more sweetness, but rather, figure out a cocktail variation that plays off the maple flavor and balances it out.
We enjoy the occasional manhattan and martini but are not huge cocktail people - which means there's probably room to experiment. Any ideas?
