Cocktail: The Gold Rush

It’s holiday time and to me that means cocktails.  I stared at the liquor cabinet – well, in my case, liquor shelves – and picked a spirit I hadn’t used in a while – Domaine de Canton.
Domaine de Canton is a ginger liqueur made by hand with Vietnamese baby ginger in small batches – according to the website :-).   The very pretty bottle also comes with a bunch of recipe ideas, and I stole one that sounded tasty.  This one is usually made with bourbon and honey reminding me a little of a whiskey sour.

The Gold Rush

  • 1 1/2 oz Domaine de Canton
  • 1 oz Angel’s Envy – or any bourbon of your choice
  • 1/2 oz fresh lemon juice

Pour everything into a shaker, added ice and shake for about a minute.

Strain into a coupe glass.

Because it reminded me of a whiskey sour, I garnished with a Luxardo cherry.

I don’t love whiskey, so this isn’t my favorite cocktail.  I liked it and would definitely order it in a whiskey bar.
