Hi all! I know, it has been awhile. We are in the process of selling the small bar to move into a larger bar that has more space for the liquor. Er, I mean we are in the process of moving to a bigger house!
My bestie Winnie gave me a cocktail book, the PDT cocktail book, this week and it has so many awesome and interesting recipes. I started out easy, because I did not want to mess anything up!
The Gold Rush is a variation on the Whisky Sour, an all time favorite of mine, and it used honey in the stead of simple syrup. The honey imparts a rich color and flavor to the drink that improves the experience over a traditional whisky sour.
The Gold Rush
2 oz bourbon
0.75 oz Lemon juice
1 oz honey
Shake in ice and pour over cubes in a rocks glass.
I was a little short on the honey (we were running out) and a little long on the lemon juice (it was a Meyer lemon so I did not want to discard the extra juice!) but it still tuned out lovely. Definitely an easy, delicious drink for a warm spring evening!
