1792 Signature Cocktails: The Gold Rush

by Scott Wagner

Like a whiskey sour, with a twist 

Honey. Lemon. Bourbon. It’s this trio of ingredients that lends the Gold Rush cocktail it’s signature sweet and sour taste. It’s essentially a whiskey sour, but made with honey instead of simple syrup. And though you might think such a small tweak wouldn’t make a difference when it comes to a flavor profile, it most definitely does. Give this classic a whirl with the recipe below. 

The Gold Rush Cocktail Ingredients 

  • 2 oz. 1792 Bourbon 
  • 1 oz. fresh lemon juice 
  • 1 oz. honey (preferably organic and locally produced) 

The Gold Rush Cocktail Directions 

  1. Combine bourbon, lemon juice, and honey into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until cold. (Note: make sure to shake hard enough so that the honey dissolves) 
  2. Strain into an old-fashioned glass filled with ice
