Kentucky Mule

Crisp Refreshing Kentucky Mule - Perfect warm weather, porch sittin' cocktail!

The Kentucky Mule is one of our favorite new summertime cocktails. A twist on the classic Moscow Mule, it is crisp and refreshing. Good quality bourbon is the key to this drink. Everyone has their own favorite ginger beer preference. Me, I like it extra spicy and not too sweet. It’s taken me a long time to find my perfect ginger beer and now I can no longer find it in my area. So I’m trying my hand at homemade. Fingers crossed!
