Kentucky Mule

This post may contain affiliate links. Read about our privacy policy.

One of my hot-summer, go-to cocktails, the Kentucky Mule combines just the right amount of spice and kick. Feel free to enjoy its Russian counterpart, the Moscow Mule, by substituting vodka for the bourbon.


  • 4-5oz Ginger Beer
  • 1.5 oz Kentucky Bourbon (I used Lone Star 1835…Texas REPRESENT!)
  • .5 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
  • All the crushed ice
  • Lime wedge (for garnish, optional)


  1. In a copper mug (so fancy) or your favorite cocktail glass, measure out the ginger beer, bourbon, and lime.
  2. Add ice and stir. I prefer crushed ice, or if you have it, the fancy slushie ice. You can also use a blender to get a nice ice texture, but again, not required.
  3. Garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy immediately.
