Ginger Gold Rush

  • Serves

    makes 1 Cocktail


This is a twist on a whiskey sour variation called the Gold Rush, traditionally a simple concoction of bourbon, honey, and fresh lemon juice. Here, we replace the honey with a ginger liqueur, which adds an exotic kick without the need for a flavored syrup or bitters, resulting is a bright spicy note that plays well with the oaky bourbon.


  • 1 12 oz. ginger liqueur (like Domaine de Canton)
  • 1 oz. bourbon
  • 12 oz. fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • Brandied cherry, for garnish


Step 1

Put the brandied cherry in the bottom of a martini glass. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain over the cherry into the glass.
