Gold Rush Cocktail Recipe

Gold Rush Cocktail

A delicious, simple cocktail. You’ll want to make the honey syrup for this, which makes all the difference. Serve it in a rocks glass with a big ice cube to let it melt a little slower – granted, you’ll probably have polished it off before any dilution really occurs in your glass.

Honey syrup is very easy to make: follow a traditional simple syrup recipe but sub the majority of the sugar for honey. The texture of this syrup is velvety and gives a bit of structure to the drink.
