…from the Happy Hour Bar
How you doin’? It’s Friday cocktail time at the Perspectives’ Survival Guide. In Survival Guide #206 I extolled the virtues of a classic Moscow Mule which is one of our favorite bar recipes. Today I want to share a bit of the blarney with you with a fun, fast twist on the classic in this Irish Mule cocktail.
It’s the perfect combination of good Irish Whiskey and Ginger Beer. I’ve served this beverage at the Customs House Restaurants on Saint Patrick’s Day, but this is not a once-a-year libation. You can enjoy this cocktail on any day you’re craving a whiskey cocktail.
This recipe uses Irish Whiskey instead of Russian vodka. We love Mule-style cocktails because they are so easy to make and always taste so amazingly refreshing.
1-1/2 ounces Irish Whiskey
4 to 5 ounces ginger beer
1 or 2 fresh-cut lime wedges for the juice and garnish
Mint sprig for garnish
It’s that simple! This makes it one of the easiest cocktail recipes you can make—perfect for a stay-at-home happy hour.
ChefSecret: I used Jameson Irish Whiskey in my cocktail, but you can use any Irish Whiskey you have in your home bar. Because the Irish Whiskey is mixed with Ginger Beer you don't need to use a high-end whiskey. You can use an economy whiskey or what’s ever available.
Mule cocktails are traditionally served in a copper cup,but it doesn’t have to be served in copper. The copper cup takes on the temperature of the drink and there’s something about taking a sip of the drink with a cool copper rim… it feels even so good!
Covid-19 Quip of the Day: “I saw a young lady protesting milk in front of a Trader Joe’s the other day. Would someone please explain to these people that you don’t have to kill a cow to get milk.”
