Today marks the start of the Las Vegas Golden Knights second season and I couldn’t be more thrilled! I can’t wait to settle onto the couch with a Gold Rush and watch the game tonight! A Gold Rush is a combination of bourbon, lemon, and honey syrup that goes down so easily you’ll barely notice the alcohol. Seriously, these things are potent. I started making this golden cocktail last year to celebrate the Knights making the playoffs and it quickly became a tradition. Today I’m sharing the recipe with you to kick off hockey season!

You will need:
2 oz Bourbon (I like Evan Williams)
3/4 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice (1-2 lemons) I can’t emphasize this enough, use freshly squeezed lemon juice. It makes a huge difference!
3/4 oz honey syrup (instructions below)
A cocktail shaker (or a pitcher if you’re making a large batch like I do!)
Makes 1 cocktail
- First you’ll need to make the honey syrup. Pour equal parts honey and water (if you’re making one cocktail you’ll need 1/2 cup of each) into a small saucepan, then cook it over medium heat until the honey is completely dissolved. Set the syrup aside to cool.
- Once the honey syrup has cooled, you can add all of the ingredients to the shaker or pitcher and shake/stir to combine. Serve over an ice ball or a couple cubes of ice. Enjoy responsibly!
