Gold Rush



Hiding inside from the cold this weekend? Matt's signature cocktail, the gold rush, will keep you nice and warm. The straws and tall glasses are cute, but truthfully this is more of a slow sipping drink unless you'd like to add some sparkling water or soda to tone it down a notch. It's really good in a short tumbler with a ball of ice and sipped like an old fashioned. Such an easy way to impress guests! You can use any type of bourbon, but because it's a strong drink, if you have a particular preference in brands you'll be able to taste a difference. I ordered the straws from this website.

Matt's Gold Rush for Two:

  • 3 tbsp. honey

  • 2 tbsp. boiling water (flat)

  • 1/2 cup bourbon (1/3 cup for the teetotalers)

  • 4 oz. fresh lemon juice (about 1 and 1/2 lemons)

Whisk honey and boiling water together. Pour into a cocktail shaker and add bourbon and lemon juice. Refrigerate for at least half an hour and pour over ice. Add a slice of lemon for garnish. Yield: two servings.
