The Gold Rush

Prep Time: 5m
Total Time: 5m

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!
