Review:

The name refers to this sweet 'n' sour, zesty ginger cocktail's golden hue. Bourbon provides the base, while lemon and lime balance the warming, rich ginger liqueur and honey (which replaced sugar syrup in our previous version of this recipe in January 2024).

Variant:

Gold Rush

Alcohol content:

  • 0.9 standard drinks
  • 19.57% alc./vol. (39.14° proof)
