Gold Rush

The Gold Rush is a new-ish cocktail that tastes like a classic, with its straightforward mix of bourbon, lemon, and honey. It’s the brainchild of bartender T.J. Siegal, who created it at New York’s Milk & Honey sometime in the mid-00s.

The recipe (as printed in 3-Ingredient Cocktails: An Opinionated Guide to the Most Enduring Drinks in the Cocktail Canon by Robert Simonson, another Milk & Honey alum) calls for Henry McKenna bonded 10-year bourbon. But it’s such a good recipe, it’ll elevate even a bottom-shelf bourbon to something magical.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a lemon twist, a bit of honeycomb, or just serve as-is.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
