I don’t care for vodka, so never acquired a taste for Moscow Mules. Bourbon, however, is an entirely different story. In camp or on the back porch, the Kentucky Mule is sure to refresh. Go ahead, have another. You deserve it.
- 1 oz bourbon-I prefer Bulleit or Makers Mark. Rye will do as well.
- 8 oz Ginger beer. I prefer Fever-Tree. Cock ‘n Bull is also good, but a little spicier.
- 1 wedge of lime and/or a generous splash of lime juice
In a metal camp mug combine 1 oz bourbon with 8 oz ginger beer. Add a generous splash of lime juice or squeeze a wedge of lime into the drink and drop it in. Or use juice and a wedge of lime – it’s your drink. Give it a stir and add ice to bring the liquid up to the rim of the cup. Enjoy!
