Kentucky Mule

Kentucky Mule. This rendition of a Moscow Mule is made with bourbon instead of vodka and infused with fresh ginger syrup. Using fresh ingredients helps create a healthy cocktail that people will love. Select a sharp, effervescent and not-too-sweet ginger beer, such as Fever-Tree.


Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine sugar, water and ginger in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Boil for about 30 seconds. Remove from heat, cover and let cool to room temperature, about 1 hour. Strain the syrup, discarding the ginger.

  • For each drink, muddle 5 mint leaves with 1 1/2 ounces bourbon in an 8-ounce glass of chilled copper mug. Add 3 tablespoons of lime juice and 1 tablespoon of syrup. Fill with ice and top off with 3 tablespoons ginger beer. Garnish with a mint sprig and lime wedge, if desired.
