Mixing up a Kentucky Mule!

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.
