Pre-batching honey into bourbon (for a Gold Rush)

Recommended Posts

The one cocktail that it seems like many of my friends share a taste for is the Gold Rush - we all like it. So it would be nice to be able to make it relatively quickly whenever we happen to have guests. I'm wondering if it would be possible to pre-batch the honey simple syrup into the bourbon, so that I could just pour 2.75oz of that mix into the shaker and add 3/4 of lemon. Would that be pantry-safe? I'd imagine that the proof should be high enough (at a ratio of 2:3/4, that's ~60 proof) to keep it from being unsafe, but does anyone know if it kills the flavor of the honey?

Honey seems to be pretty stable on the shelf so it seems like it should remain so with the addition of the alcohol in the bourbon. Maybe refrigerate to be sure?

 

Only real way to know if the honey syrup keeps it flavor I suppose would be to try it and see!

How about dissolving the honey right into the bourbon? The ABV would be a bit higher. A long shake and you'll be back to normal ABV in the final drink.
