You will find the Gold Mine to be one of the more intriguing lowball drinks available. It begins with a mix of Scotch (I recommend a blended Scotch such as Famous Grouse or Chivas Regal), Galliano, and sherry for a semi-sweet, rich, slightly herbal base. The egg and lime juice bond those three flavors, and the lemonade top brings in a lighter side, transforming the drink into a refreshing sipper. This is one of those cocktails that are universal for most occasions and any season.
