Unsalted Caramel Burnt Gold Rush Cocktail

  • Difficulty Easy
  • Time 5 minutes

The Unsalted Caramel-brûléed lemon slice absolutely makes this cocktail – because a charred lemon is a tasty lemon.

With a base from our friends over at Maker’s Mark, this cocktail is smoky, sweet, tart, and perfect to sip on as the weather warms up.

Unsalted Caramel Burnt Gold Rush Cocktail

  • Author: Spiceology
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 0 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 cocktail 1x


  • 2 oz Maker’s Mark (I used 46 because I like the amped up flavors)
  • 3/4 oz honey (1.5 Tbsp in case you need the conversion!)
  • 1 oz (2 Tbsp) lemon juice from charred lemons
  • 1/4 t of Spiceology Unsalted Caramel, plus extra for garnish


  1. Slice lemons and char. I used a crème brulée torch, but you can broil or grill them as well. Save one charred slice for a special garnish tip at the end.
  2. In a pint glass, muddle two-three charred lemon slices to release 1 oz (2 T) fresh, charred lemon juice. 
  3. Add the honey, Maker’s Mark, Unsalted Caramel, and Ice to the pint glass, top it with a shaker and shake vigorously. 
  4. Strain the liquid into a rocks glass and enjoy… or add a fancy garnish. 
  5. Sprinkle Unsalted Caramel over the remaining charred lemon slice and brulée it! Add it to your glass, sit back and admire your tasty work.
