We tried out a delicious small batch bourbon for this recipe. It’s called Black Maple Hill. An authentic Kentucky Bourbon, this baby has tasting notes of “vanilla, caramel, spice and nectarine. Very smooth without being cloying or flat.” Thanks to the reviewers here for those notes; my palate loves this bourbon but comes up short with the adjectives. I’d make a terrible perfumier!
Another thing to love about this cocktail is it’s simplicity. Three ingredients, a citrus twist if you want to be fancy, and serve.
Ginger Gold Rush
Combine all three ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake well, then strain into a martini glass. Serve with a citrus twist if desired.
- 1.5 ounces Bourbon
- 1.5 ounces Ginger Liqueur (we used Canton)
- .5 ounces fresh lemon juice
