rose gold

1 1/2 oz High West American Prairie Bourbon
1/2 oz Campari
1/2 oz Honey Syrup 1:1
1/2 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice, strain into a rocks glass with a big ice cube, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Wednesdays ago, the Boston USBG chapter hosted Chris Furtado at the Smoke Shop in Somerville to discuss the history and product line of Utah's High West Distillery. For a welcome drink, I selected the Rose Gold that Smoke Shop beverage director Michael Boughton made for me, and I had to assume that it was a bitter riff on the Gold Rush. This whiskey Sour featured Campari and honey that worked well rather recently in the Low Down and was rather pleasant in the Negroni Grog. In the glass, the Rose Gold panned out whiskey, orange, and honey-herbal notes to the nose. Next, lemon, honey, and malt on the sip soon discovered Bourbon and bitter orange flavors on the swallow with a dry floral finish.
