The Perfect Gold Rush Cocktail

Deceptively simple at first glance, this drink could be mistaken for a honeyed-up version of the Whiskey Sour, or a bourbon-spiked take on the Bee’s Knees. But the Gold Rush is a cocktail all its own, created in the early aughts with the feel of a pre-Prohibition classic. It came about as bartenders began tweaking recipes, pouring newly available liqueurs, and swapping in alternate base spirits.
