Allison's Gold Rush Whiskey Cocktail

“I feel like girls who drink whiskey tell good stories” ~ Atticus

We agree with this quote 100%. We’re always trying to tell a good story with everything we share on Just Try It. Whiskey is no exception. We’re fans. Allison and her husband Ben discovered “The Gold Rush” cocktail years ago at a favorite Indianapolis restaurant called Bluebeard. This is one you’ll want to run and get the ingredients for immediately, although it’s quite possible that if you tell a good story, you’ve got everything you need to make this delicious cocktail.


• 3 ounces bourbon ( we like Bulleit )

• 1 ounce simple syrup

• 2 ounces lemon juice, freshly squeezed

• 1 tablespoon egg white (optional)


Add all the ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake hard for 30 seconds. If you decide to leave the egg white out, it'll still be wonderfully tart and delish. Strain into a glass with one large ice cube or multiple cubes. Enjoy!
