Kentucky Mule Recipe

I've been wanting a pair of copper mugs for some time now, but I always thought they were too expensive. I finally found some beautiful hand-crafted mugs from a company based right here in California and they're actually affordable! Copper Mug Co. makes really gorgeous genuine copper products, from the barrel hammered (pictured) to wine cups to flasks.

To make a Kentucky Mule, you need:
1 Sprig Mint
Ginger Beer
1 Lime
If you're a proper bartender, a shaker (I'm not)

Fill your Copper Mug about halfway with ice. Pull some mint leaves off of the sprig and mash along the side of your mug. Leave the smaller bits and pieces of mint in the bottom of your mug for flavoring. For a strong drink, mix 2 oz of rye with 2 oz of ginger beer. Juice half a lime and add to your drink. Put the rest of the sprig of mint into the drink for a pretty garnish. Enjoy!

For a more diluted drink, mix 2 oz of rye with 4 oz of ginger beer and follow the rest of the recipe as is.
