Cocktail: Bourbon Mule
A Bourbon Mule recipe with ginger and lime? Yes, please!
True confession: The first time I ordered a Moscow Mule, it was because I liked the copper mug.
I did like the cocktail, but now have a new favorite mule.
Moscow Mules are made with a Russian favorite alcohol, vodka, while a Bourbon Mule is, of course, made with bourbon.
Both adult beverages are served in copper mugs, and have other similar ingredients.
The taste, however, is very different with the bourbon.
Bourbon whiskey must be made in the USA, when it says ‘bourbon’ on the bottle label.
Most of it comes from the state of Kentucky, but there are smaller batch producers in other states, as well.
Any type of bourbon can be used in this recipe, but the quality and flavor of the spirit will dominate the cocktail.
Some may prefer a sweeter spirit and others may prefer a pricey, well-aged spirit.
Copper mugs are the vessel of choice for this cocktail, since they keep it extra cold.
There has been an explosion of craft Ginger Beer in the last few years, so there are plenty of brands to choose from.
You can substitute Ginger Ale in the recipe, but I don’t recommend it.
Ginger Beer has a much stronger, natural ginger taste that is perfect for this cocktail.
Enjoy the recipe, and, of course, drink responsibly!
