Gold Rush

Gold Rush

Tom 1

"The Gold Rush is the hot toddy's cold summer sibling — bourbon, honey, and lemon juice, shaken and served over ice instead of hot in a mug. It's sweet, tangy, and strong — full-bodied in a way that makes it a satisfying alternative to the crisper gin drinks of summer. It also is easy. Just three ingredients! Honey (thinned and melted in hot water), lemon juice, and bourbon are always in stock in my kitchen. Even better: I find that you can mix all the ingredients for this drink together and keep a batch in a jar in the fridge. Pour over ice and shake hard, then sip over a big block of ice."
