Smaug’s Gold Cocktail Recipe (The Hobbit)


Smaug's gold rush cocktail with bourbon and lemons

In our HOBBIT PARTY themed episode of Maybe Wil Wheaton Will Show Up, we made a summer cocktail called the Gold Rush, and called it “Smaug’s Gold.” Smaug’s the dragon. Get it? Anyways, it was very tasty. Here’s the recipe!


  • Bourbon
  • Honey
  • Lemon juice / lemons
  • Ice


  1. Mix 1 part honey to 1 part hot water to make honey syrup.
  2. Pour 1 part honey syrup, 2 parts bourbon, and 1 part lemon juice into a cocktail shaker (or a cup if you don’t have one).
  3. Shake well, pour into your glass, and drink up!

The golden color of this drink is very attractive and probably could be used for a number of dragon-themed things, but Smaug’s Gold just has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?

Watch us make it, and see our other ideas for a Hobbit party in the video below:
