Honey ganache recipe?

DistrictDarling Jan 8, 2007 09:42 PM

A bar in NYC serves a drink called the Gold Rush (bourbon + honey + lemon juice = mmm), and tops it off with a honey ganache. I'm trying to copycat it. I can make the cocktail itself, but can't find a recipe for honey ganache. Does anyone have one, or is willing to take a guess at one?

      Hm, I immediately thought chocolate too.

      What was it like? Thin, crispy? Nougaty? Mousse-y?

        I actually don't know. A friend ordered the drink, and later e-mailed me to ask if I could dupulicate it. An article in the NYTimes provided the recipe ingredients, and listed "honey ganache" among them. Your guess is as good as mine as to what this means.

        Ganache by definition is chocolate melted in hot cream. Maybe they used a honey cream and called it ganache. What color was the topping? Could it have been white chocolate mixed with honey and cream? Sounds interesting.

            Well done, my friend. Excellent research. Looks like honey ganache is rather creamy.
