Kentucky Mule Bourbon Drink

Have you tried a Kentucky Mule? It’s similar to the Moscow Mule, but made with bourbon rather than vodka. This simple and delicious drink is a mix of bourbon whiskey, fresh lime juice and ginger beer. For the best flavor, be sure to use ginger beer rather than ginger ale. I used Gosling’s Stormy Ginger Beer to make this drink.

Kentucky Mule Drink Recipe
1 1/2 ounces bourbon whiskey such as Jim Beam or Maker’s Mark
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
4 ounces cold ginger beer
Lime wedge

Fill a glass with ice. Add bourbon and lime juice; top with ginger beer. Garnish with lime.

Makes 1 drink

Drink Ratio: 1 1/2 parts bourbon, 1/2 part lime juice, 4 parts ginger beer

Tip: To make a Big Ginger Drink, use Irish whiskey in place of the bourbon and substitute ginger ale for the ginger beer. Garnish with lemon and lime wedges.
