Gold Rush

Gold Rush in Glass

With its sunny, golden hue, this cocktail seems to guarantee a shiny New Year. It’s tart and slightly sweet, and it takes us right back to our childhood lemonade stand — so refreshing.

Our tip: Make it with Bulleit Rye Whiskey. The whiskey’s warm honey and vanilla flavors provide a nice base note to the drink’s brighter tones, adding a little cinnamon and spice along the way.

Servings: 1


2 oz whiskey
¾ oz honey syrup (recipe below)
¾ oz lemon juice


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake heartily, and strain into a chilled rocks glass with lots of ice.

Honey Syrup


1½ cups honey
1½ cups water


  1. Combine ingredients in a small saucepan and heat on low until the ingredients combine.
  2. Let cool, cover, and store in the refrigerator for up to three weeks.
