Signature Cocktail :: Gold Rush

Daylight savings really did a number on me this year! But even though it’s technically still winter, I’m pretty thankful that San Francisco has been experiencing some really warm weather (hello, 70 degrees!). I’m proposing a toast to sunshine and getting my sleep schedule back on track with this delicious signature cocktail from Paula LeDuc. All you pineapple lovers, this drink is for you! The Gold Rush is a tart, refreshing combo of apricot liquor, sherry and crushed pineapple—like summer in a cup. If you try making this signature sip for yourself, tag us on Instagram!
