The Gold Rush
This is so simple, it’s basically a whiskey sour with honey instead of sugar syrup. As soon as I saw it here, I knew I was trying it, it’s perfect for the transition into autumn…and I was not going to feature this until the Olympics and Paralympics were done with…
It’s really good and because the recipe is for 2 drinks, make sure that there’s another person with you or you’re probably having two! But the joy of it is that it’s easy to scale the recipe up for more people…
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons boiling water
4 oz (1/2 cup) bourbon
1 1/2 lemons, juiced, about 4 tablespoons
1) Put honey into a jar or cocktail shaker.
2) Add the boiling water and mix until you have thin syrup.
3) Add the bourbon and lemon juice. Mix together. (You can if you wish put this in a fridge for later!)
4) Add ice and shake.
5) Pour into rocks glass over ice.
