Gold Rush Cocktail Recipe

A simple cocktail with a touch of Gold Rush dresses up Bourbon. There are two accepted recipes that can be used to make it, and it is a fun and sassy way to enjoy your favorite whiskey. A bourbon cocktail paired with lemon juice is a Gold Rush. For the stronger of the two drinks, ginger liqueur is used and dominates the drink, outpouring the whiskey. Another variation replaces the liqueur with homemade honey syrup, which makes it a little sweeter than the first. This cocktail is a thoughtful choice for showcasing bourbons of all types and they make an excellent canvas for exploring new and renowned brands.
