The Gold Rush

I just read a book where a bartender asked a girl if she liked girlie drinks or manly drinks.  I realized, I am a total girlie girl drinker.  He said girls that drink manly drinks have moxie.  I personally think I am a girl with a lot of moxie, so I needed a manly drink that I could order up.  Now I know what your thinking, this is not a manly drink, but I am going to disagree…. there is bourbon in it after all! 🙂

makes 2 drinks

  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup of boiling water
  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) bourbon
  • 1 1/2 lemons, juiced, about 4 tablespoons

Put water in small mixing bowl and microwave for 40 seconds until boiling.

Add honey and whisk vigorously until they form a thin syrup. Whisk in the bourbon and lemon juice. Mixture can be refrigerated until ready to serve.

To serve, shake vigorously with ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain over a big ice cube in a rocks glass.

    I came back to bookmark this one before I forget it. I may try one of these later, after the work is done for the day.

    I’m not sure what moxie is but I usually prefer girlie cocktails! This one looks worth a try…. especially if it gives me moxie 😉
