New York’s iconic Milk and Honey bar looms large in cocktail history and their Gold Rush cocktail is certainly one of the drinks most associated with the famed Lower East Side location.
Here we present our apricot spin on the Gold Rush, aptly titled, the Apricot Rush. We’ve split the base spirit and added cognac to the traditional base of bourbon. This adds an extra dimension to the drink and sits beautifully alongside the apricot liqueur we’ve added to the mix.
New York City is truly the land of milk and honey when it comes to cocktails and we’re proud to offer this fine twist on the whiskey sour for you to enjoy at your pleasure.
