This new take on the whiskey sour will become a St. Patrick's day fave.
Skip the green beer this St. Patrick’s day – instead, try this more sophisticated cocktail! This is the treasure that the leprechaun has been hiding at the end of the rainbow all these years. Inspired by Food Republic’s Gold Rush Cocktail recipe, this smooth bourbon whisky pairs perfectly with the sweet and tart apple soda, and the bright orange juice brings everything together.
The real fun in this cocktail though, is the thick gold sprinkles that are much bigger than normal rimming sugar and add a nice crunchy bite to each sip.
Fresh squeezed orange juice is essential to the drink. It sort of wakes up the other ingredients.
Rim the glass with these big gold sprinkles.
Bourbon and orange juice go into the shaker, but don’t add the apple soda until after you shake it.
A tasty twist on a classic gold rush cocktail, this drink has everything you need to make your St. Patrick’s Day party a real winner!
