There are those times, especially when you’re traveling, and you have something that’s so good. And then you go home, and you’re like “where did I have that really great meal?” It’s only after the realization sets in that it was when you were away, and you can’t get that thing at home. Trust me, I’ve been there. A lot. The Rush on the Rocks cocktail is a great example.
Rush on the Rocks is one of the Hard Rock Cafe’s signature drinks. If you’ve ever been to a Hard Rock Cafe, you know that everything – ERRYTHANG – there is music themed. The cocktails are no exception. This one is named after the eponymous Canadian rock band Rush. I’m guessing it has something to do with the maple flavoring and Canadian whisky. These are also the same things that makes this a great drink for Fall. And we’re teaching you how to make one at home. Yay!
