The Gold Rush Of 2021 Is Here — And The Modern Spin Is Worth Sipping On

The gold rush cocktail is one of my favorite classic cocktails. I love the combination of bourbon and honey. Also, another bright side: It is only three ingredients, which makes it so easy to make at home.

I decided to add some brighter notes with the addition of honey jasmine syrup. The floral notes definitely take this classic up a notch and is perfect for happy hour.

If you have never tried a gold rush cocktail before I suggest you make it soon, and then try this variation of it, too.
