Honey Don’t List / Honey Bourbon Gold Rush Cocktail

The Honey Don’t List is a romance about two personal assistants who find love while trying to keep their bosses’ marriage from imploding. This is the first Christina Lauren book I have read, and it was a quick and enjoyable read. I’ll admit I did picture Chip and Joanna Gaines in the place of Rusty and Melissa Tripp.

In honor of the Honey-Do Lists that Melissa is famous for leaving for her husband (and the millions of dollars at stake), I decided to make a Honey Bourbon Gold Rush cocktail. I would definitely need a cocktail or two after having to deal with the drama created by the Tripps.

Honey Bourbon Gold Rush


  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 ½ ounces bourbon
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Ice
  • Lemon slice for garnish


Combine honey and water in a cocktail shaker; stir until the honey is dissolved. Add bourbon and lemon juice. Fill the shaker three-fourths full of ice, cover and shake until chilled, about 20 seconds. Strain the cocktail into a rocks glass filled with ice and garnish with lemon slice, if desired.
