Simplicity. With only 3 ingredients, this whiskey drink is anything but fussy. It’s also quite delicious.
A Kentucky Mule is a mix of fresh lime juice, spicy ginger beer and bourbon whiskey. It’s one of my favorite simple drinks. Besides using a decent bourbon (from Kentucky, of course), the key to this cocktail is using a good tasting ginger beer. I used Gosling’s Stormy Ginger Beer to make this drink. Whatever mixer you choose, be sure to use ginger beer rather than ginger ale.

Tip: To make a Moscow Mule, use vodka in place of the bourbon. But really, why would you choose vodka over whiskey? :)
