The Sluice Box

Introduction: The Sluice Box

Sluice Box /slo͞os/ noun

"a long, sloping trough... with grooves on the bottom, into which water is directed to separate gold from gravel or sand." (dictionary.com)

I live in the Yukon, and I created this drink in honour of the rich history of gold mining in the Yukon, which continues to this day. The clear water-like vodka is washing away the earth toned Kahlua from the gold of the Yukon Jack.
