The Kentucky Mule
For those who like their cocktails with more of an American Southern vibe, or for those who just don’t like vodka, the highly refreshing alternative to the Moscow Mule is the Kentucky Mule. It’s made exactly the same as the Moscow version, only instead of 2 oz. of vodka, you use 2 oz. of bourbon. And, in a nod to its Kentucky cousin, you garnish it with a sprig of mint.
