Cocktail Recipe: Ginger Gold Rush

Cocktail Recipe: Ginger Gold Rush

After browsing the Saveur drinks Tumblr for a while, we headed on over to the Friday Cocktails section on the Saveur website. There, we discovered another twist on a cocktail called the Ginger Gold Rush. We liked the thinking of swapping out  honey with a ginger liqueur.

(It) 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. — Savuer

All fine and dandy but we had a feeling it was a little too much ginger. So we swapped their ratios for ginger and bourbon and came up with a lovely cocktail, indeed.

Ginger Gold Rush

1 1/2 ounces Bourbon

1 ounce ginger liqueur (like Domaine de Canton)

1/2 ounce fresh-squeezed lemon juice

Brandied cherry, for garnish

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.
