My husband recently returned from a work trip. When I asked what the best part of his trip was, he told me that it was being introduced to the Kentucky Mule… not exactly the response I was expecting! I thought he might actually mention something work related… lol! Neither of us had heard of this drink before. A Kentucky Mule is a take on the popular and delicious Moscow Mule which I was already well acquainted with ;)) It is a super refreshing drink that consists of ginger beer, lime, mint and vodka. To switch it from a Moscow to a Kentucky, all you have to do is substitute Bourbon for Vodka.
- Ginger beer
- Fresh mint leaves
- Bourbon (it’s a Kentucky Mule after all)
Throw some mint leaves and 1/2 of a lime into a shaker and muddle together
Add ice, along with 1 oz to 1 1/2 oz of bourbon, then give a good shake to mix all those flavours together
Pour into a copper mug
Add 4 to 5 oz of your favourite chilled ginger beer
Garnish with a few mint leaves and a lime wedge
Hopefully you have a chance to enjoy this delicious & refreshing drink this summer!
Thank you for reading!
