The Gold Rush cocktail is as simple as it gets. It just needs three ingredients: bourbon, honey simple syrup, and lemon. This cocktail resembles a whiskey sour, except it takes honey simple instead of regular. There’s also no egg white in a Gold Rush, meaning it’s smoother and less fizzy. Don’t be mistaken, using bourbon instead of whiskey along with the addition of honey truly transforms this cocktail, giving it a taste different from a sour.
