  • 4 tablespoons Bourbon whiskey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons infused honey syrup
  • Ice cubes
  • Lemon twist, for garnish

Infused Honey Syrup:

  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 cardamom pods, lightly crushed
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons honey


Prepare the Infused Honey Syrup:

  • In a saucepan, combine water, rosemary, cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 5-7 minutes to infuse the flavors.
  • Remove the saucepan from heat and let it cool until lukewarm.
  • Strain the infused water to remove the herbs and spices.
  • Stir in honey until completely dissolved. Adjust the honey quantity to your desired sweetness.

Shake and Chill:

  • Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
  • Pour in the Bourbon whiskey, fresh lemon juice, and the infused honey syrup.
  • Secure the shaker lid and shake the mixture vigorously for about 10-15 seconds to chill the ingredients.

Strain and Serve:

  • Using a strainer, pour the cocktail mixture into a rocks glass filled with ice.
  • The ice helps to mellow the flavors and keeps the drink refreshingly cold.

Garnish with Elegance:

  • Express the oils from a lemon twist over the cocktail by giving it a gentle twist over the drink. This adds a burst of citrus aroma.
  • Drop the twisted lemon peel into the glass as a sophisticated garnish.

Sip and Savor:

  • Take a moment to appreciate the golden hue of the Gold Rush Honey Bourbon Cocktail with its infused honey syrup.
  • Sip slowly and enjoy the harmonious blend of rich Bourbon, the brightness of fresh lemon, and the complex sweetness of the infused honey syrup.

Variations (Optional):

  • For a touch of warmth, consider adding a dash of aromatic bitters to the mix.
  • Experiment with different herbs and spices in the infused honey syrup for unique flavor profiles.
  • If you prefer a smokier profile, you can try using a Bourbon with smoky undertones.
