Golden Rush Cocktail

Share This:

We both love a classic Gold Rush cocktail but we wanted to dress this classic cocktail up a bit for the holidays with a ginger-spiced honey syrup you’ll love. Make the honey and ginger syrup in advance and pulling together this cocktail takes just a few minutes at happy hour or before dinner. We also love making big batches of the syrup to give as a delicious gift. Cheers!
