Kentucky Mule Recipe

The Kentucky Mule is a Southern twist on the classic Moscow Mule cocktail.

This refreshing drink stands out from the crowd thanks to its unique presentation in a frosty copper mug. 

For the Kentucky Mule, You’ll Need: (With recommendations!)

  • Copper Mug (Definitely not necessary, but advised!)
  • 1.5-2.5 oz. Bourbon (Rye or other American whiskey will do) (Bang-for-your-buck: Evan Williams Bottled-in-Bond. Mid-shelfer: Woodford Reserve, Buffalo Trace, or Russel’s Reserve. Top tier: Angel’s Envy, E.H. Taylor, or Balcones)
  • .5-1.5 oz. Lime Juice
  • 6 oz. Ginger Beer (I love Bundaberg, but Cock n’ Bull is the original!)
  • Lime wedge for garnish


  • Fill Copper Mug a little more than half way with ice
  • Pour whiskey and lime juice together into Mug
  • Top off with Ginger Beer to taste
  • Garnish with lime wedge
  • ENJOY!
