You will find the Gold Mine to be one of the more intriguing lowball drinks available. It begins with a mix of Scotch (I recommend a blended Scotch such as Famous Grouse or Chivas Regal), Galliano, and sherry for a semi-sweet, rich, slightly herbal base. The egg and lime juice bond those three flavors, and the lemonade top brings in a lighter side, transforming the drink into a refreshing sipper. This is one of those cocktails that are universal for most occasions and any season.


Steps to Make It

  1. Pour the whiskey, liqueur, sherry, egg white, and lime juice into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.

  2. Strain into a chilled old-fashioned glass filled with ice.

  3. Top with lemonade.

  4. Garnish with a skewered orange slice and cherry flag.
