Ft. Knox Cocktail

New to Five Leaves' spring cocktail menu, this drink plays on the name's Gold Rush theme by using only gold-hued ingredients (wink, wink).


  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 1 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • ¾ ounce maple syrup
  • ½ ounce orange juice
  • 4 dashes of cinnamon bitters
  • Ice
  • Orange wedge, for garnish


Add all of the liquid ingredients to a mixing glass. Shake and strain into an ice-filled cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange wedge.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
