White Russian Mule

After a delicious meal we love a slightly sweet cocktail to sip along with our dessert. Enter the White Russian. You've probably had a White Russian in a rocks glass, but have you ever thought to sip on one from a moscow mule mug? Our mugs aren't just for the classic moscow mule! The White Russian looks and tastes divine when paired with a gorgeous handmade mule mug. Your guests will be so impressed with such a unique pairing. Plus the copper mugs help keep the drink extra frosty!

There are only three ingredients in this simple cocktail:

Vodka

We recommend your favorite vodka, and as premium as you can afford.

Coffee Liqueur

A high-quality coffee flavored liqueur is key to this recipe. Kahlua is a classic favorite from Mexico, but we recommend experimenting with other brands you are familiar with. There are also many excellent craft distilleries creating their own signature coffee liqueur that are worth a try.

Heavy Cream

Cream makes this cocktail creamy, rich and unexpected. You could also try substituting milk or a milk-alternative like full-fat coconut milk.

Mexican Mule

Cinco de Mayo is in two days and you need a signature cocktail for your party stat. Look no further! The Mexican Mule tastes like a combination of a margarita and a moscow mule - can you think of a more beautiful pairing? Tequila, ginger beer and lime combine to make this fresh cocktail that's perfect for long summer nights spent on the patio. The nickel-lined copper mugs help keep the drink extra cool and are a great conversation piece. Try this mule drink twist at your next party and score major brownie points for originality!

Three simple ingredients combine to create this flavour powerhouse:

Tequila

Use your favorite tequila and preferably not cheap swill you drank at university. Our palettes have evolved.

Ginger Beer

A high-quality ginger beer will make this recipe. Everyone's tastes are different, but we prefer ginger beer that is heavy on the ginger and light on the sugar. Check out Dickie's Ginger if you can find it.

Lime Juice

We always advocate for fresh lime juice and think every home bar should have a citrus press to simplify the job of juicing limes. Say goodbye to lime juice in the eye! Unless you enjoy that, in which case, carry on.

Mexican Mule
Serves 1

Ingredients

2 oz tequila
4 oz ginger beer
1/2 oz lime juice
Salted lime wedge

Directions

Kentucky Mule Recipe

Kentucky Mule Recipe

The Kentucky Mule is a Southern twist on the classic Moscow Mule drink. Your favorite bourbon replaces vodka for a sweeter and oakier taste, while all the other ingredients remain the same. Beware, these are highly addictive!

Much like many of our recipes, the Kentucky Mule consists of three ingredients:

Bourbon

Bourbon gives this cocktail a noticeable Southern flair and is a fun way to shake up your mule (no pun intended). Bourbon is an American whiskey and is made differently than traiditional whiskey. As the saying goes, "all bourbon is whiskey, but not all whiskey is bourbon".

Ginger Beer

We like ginger beer that is not too sweet, but very spicy. Try a few brands to determine your favorite. At your next cocktail party, use a few different ginger beers throughout the night and test your friends to see if they can notice the difference!

Fresh Lime Juice

Always use fresh lime juice. Nothing else compares. Believe us, we've tried.

Kentucky Mule
Serves 1

Ingredients

2.5 oz bourbon
5 oz ginger beer
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
Lime wedge and mint for garnish

Directions

Add bourbon and lime juice to Moscow Mule mugs with ice
Fill with ginger beer
Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint and a lime wedge

Irish Mule Recipe

Irish Mule Recipe

´╗┐We love testing variations on the traditional Moscow Mule! The Irish Mule uses whiskey instead of vodka and would be the perfect drink for a St. Patrick's Day party! This refreshing cocktail goes down very easily and your friends will be dying to know how you made it. Copper mugs help keep this drink extra cool - both in temperature and fashion.

Three simple ingredients combine to make this Irish inspired cocktail:

Irish Whiskey

A high-end Irish whiskey will shine in this recipe. Use your favorite or search around for a good brand.

Ginger Beer

We consider ourselves ginger beer connoisseurs and we think ginger beer should have a strong ginger flavor without too much sugar. Some brands just taste too sweet!

Lime Juice

Go fresh or go home. Bonus points if you have a citrus press or reamer!
