The Story Behind The Bulleit Kentucky Mule

The Kentucky Mule is a simple twist on the time-honored favorite, the Moscow Mule, but with Bulleit Bourbon replacing the traditional vodka to create a bolder, fuller-bodied cocktail. In this satisfying recipe, ginger ale makes a fine substitute for ginger beer, complementing the bourbon’s maple and nutmeg notes and bold, spicy character from its distinctly high rye mashbill. To build the drink, fill the iconic copper mug with ice, then add Bulleit Bourbon, lime juice, and ginger ale. Stir and top off with a lime wedge.
