Great drink!

My spouse doesn’t normally like whisky but she really liked this drink.

Boozy Beverage

A little too boozy for my crowd, so it wasn’t a hit. It was, however, a well thought out ? drink, with interesting flavor twist. If boozy’s to your liking, give it a go.

Loved this drink

Both my husband and I loved this classic drink. We don’t usually drink bourbon. The Gold Rush took us out of our comfort zone and expanded our cocktail taste buds. The very reason we joined cocktail courier. Great job. 🙂

Classic - Excellent

Can’t go wrong with a good classic tasting beverage. It all got consumed in one evening – with a few friends. Big hit.

Contemporary Classic

I made this cocktail for some of my friends on a 100+ degree day. It was very refreshing and the dehydrated lemon wheel gave such a polished look to it. Everyone loved it.

A Classic

The Gold Rush made my top three in the drinks I’ve ordered in the last two years with Cocktail Courier. It reminds me of the whiskey sours my parents made at their parties in the 60s and 70s. There’s nice balance between the ingredients and isn’t too sweet (something I will critique on every mixed drink!). I’m a whisk(e)y drinker, and the Breckinridge that came as the base was not particularly heavy, so I plan to try subbing some different brands to see the difference. Great drink!
