With only 3 ingredients, the Gold Rush cocktail is as easy to make as it is elegant. Inspired by the classic whiskey sour, this drink from beloved New York bar Milk & Honey blends bourbon, lemon juice, and rich honey syrup for a balanced sweet-tart, silky, luscious sip.
Henry McKenna bonded 10-year old bourbon is the recommended choice here, but use what you like. You’ll have a full 1/3 cup of honey syrup, so you can shake up plenty of cocktails, or try leftover syrup in tea. Play around with different types of honey too, to subtly change the flavor of the drink. For more 3-ingredient marvels, try Jackson Cannon’s Jack Rose and the Obituary Cocktail too.
