The Gold Medal Olympics Cocktail Recipe

Happy Hour: The Gold Medal

After ringing in Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year in a big way, I decided to celebrate the Winter Olympics. Unlike the rest of this month's holidays, it only comes once every four years! To commemorate the USA's first gold medal victory, I busted out the ingredients to make this cocktail, aptly dubbed The Gold Medal. Initially, I was wary of the Goldschlager — the last time I had it was freshman year of college, and it didn't go over well — and the unusual flavor profile of cinnamon, bitters, and lemon. But the result turned out to be surprisingly good. Make a winning cocktail when you read more.
