The Gold Rush

Drink: The Gold Rush

A delightful cocktail with three ingredients? Yes, please. The Gold Rush keeps it delightfully simple with bourbon, honey syrup and lemon juice. Old Forester 1920 Bourbon adds a bit of history to the mix, as it is the only bourbon continuously sold by the same distillery before, during and after prohibition. Add more or less bourbon to your liking, and try something new with local honey. Celebrate the small wins with this refreshingly simple cocktail.


  • 2 oz. Old Forester 1920 Bourbon
  • 1 oz. honey syrup
  • Lemon juice


  1. Combine bourbon and honey syrup in a glass with ice.
  2. Add in lemon juice to taste.
