The Bee's Knees

The Bee's Knees is a delightful treat to sip on when visiting bars in Golden, CO since this cocktail's sweet and tart flavors will surely leave your taste buds satisfied. It's a combination of local premium gin from Family Jones, honey syrup, and lemon juice that creates a winning flavor that will leave you buzzing with excitement. The superb mixture of citrus and sweet honey makes this a perfect drink for those who are looking to enjoy something light and refreshing that pairs well with sushi, burgers, and chicken -- all options you'll find at our food hall.

Tincup Whiskey Lemonade

Looking for an adult twist on a classic sip? This cocktail combines the tried-and-true taste of lemonade with the richness of whiskey. The whiskey adds a strong, smoky flavor while the lemonade brings a hint of tartness to balance out the sweetness and create a smooth flavor that’s ideal for sipping with a burger from Republik of Chiken or Rolling Smoke's BBQ. We use the exceptional whiskey from Tincup, which is distilled right here in Colorado. Their bold taste draws inspiration from our impressive mountain range and even uses water from the Rocky Mountains. It's a fantastic drink to enjoy on our large outdoor patio or on our rooftop area as you take in the sweeping views of North and South Table Mountain.

Ruby Red Mule

Our Ruby Red Mule is made with Deep Eddy Ruby Red vodka, lime juice, and ginger beer. The tangy and sweet flavors are a smash hit, whether it's an afternoon or evening drink, and pairs well with dishes from Sushi Sora or the tacos at Tacos Al Chile. The ginger beer adds a hint of spice, while the ruby red grapefruit gives it a tart and refreshing finish. Ditch the standard mules you'll find at other bars in Golden, CO, and try our ruby red version instead.

Espresso Martini

Want an energy boost with your cocktail? Then be sure to order our espresso martini. The home brewed local espresso and premium Family Jones vodka blend together to create a smooth and creamy cocktail that is simply unbeatable. The strong coffee flavor pairs well with the sweetness of the vodka. The espresso martini can be enjoyed any time of day and is a great way to start or end a memorable evening. With its sweet and creamy nature and quick pick-me-up, this martini is amazing alongside a spicy or bold dish such as the Nashville Hot Chicken sandwich from Republik of Chiken.


At The Golden Mill, all of our handcrafted batch cocktails are created with care and consideration to evoke the best flavors, but one drink that really sets us apart from other Golden bars is our famous margarita! We do not use pre-made mixes, rather, ours are made with fresh lime juice, agave and quality tequila and triple sec, sure to please even the most discriminating cocktails connoisseurs.
