In the last couple of years I have fallen in love with Moscow Mule cocktails. This 1940’s classic cocktail is crisp and refreshing and it’s served in a cool copper mug. (I’m all about the presentation!) Last Saturday night, the hubby and I were having “date night” at one of our favorite restaurants, Spezia, in Omaha. They always have a special menu that goes with something special that month. This month played on the Kentucky Derby. First special cocktail was a Kentucky Mule. Brilliant! Why didn’t I think of that?
I had to try one at home. I must say, I like this equally as much as the classic Moscow Mule … maybe even better! This weekend, I suggest you give it a try. I mean, put on your fancy hat and really get into it. Why not?
Come back and let me know what you think!
- 1 shot Kentucky Bourbon (can use two in a larger mug)
- Ginger beer
- 1/2 lime
- crushed ice
Fill copper mug or glass with crushed ice.
Add bourbon whiskey.
Squeeze in 1/2 lime, add the peel.
Top with ginger beer.
**My copper mugs are a 16 ounce size. I use more bourbon in mine. Adjust to your taste.
