Irish Mule Recipe is a fun twist on classic Moscow Mules. The addition of Irish Whiskey makes these cocktails taste amazing.
Irish Mule Recipe
A classic Moscow Mule is one of our favorite recipes. We wanted to share a fun twist on this classic and share this Irish Mule Drink.
It is the perfect combination of Irish Whiskey and Ginger Beer. These would be great for Saint Patrick's Day or any day you want a whiskey cocktail.
This recipe uses Irish Whiskey instead of vodka like you would find in a classic Moscow Mule.
We love Moscow Mules! They are so easy to make and always taste so refreshing and amazing. While these are perfect for St. Patrick's Day I highly suggest making them any day of the year.
Did you know you can also make a Kentucky Mule with Kentucky Bourbon?
- Irish Whiskey
- Ginger Beer
- Lime Juice
Irish Whiskey - We use Jameson Irish Whiskey but you can use any Irish Whiskey you have. 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 whatever you have available.
Ginger Beer - If you don't like the flavor of Ginger Beef you can also use ginger ale.
Lime Juice - If you don't have any fresh limes you can use Rose's Lime Juice or another premade lime juice.
Garnish - Mint leaves, lime slices
You can muddle in mint leaves if you like the additional mint flavor. We tend to leave it out since we like the combination of fresh lime juice with the ginger beer and Irish Whiskey.
Copper Moscow Mule Mug - We highly suggest putting your Copper Mule Mugs in the refrigerator for a few hours before you make this Irish Moscow Mule Cocktail. If you don't have a copper mug you can also serve this in a rocks glass or any glass really. Just adapt the ginger beer to fit into the glass you are using.
How to make an Irish Mule
Fill copper mug glass with ice, pour in Irish Whiskey, Lime Juice, and top with Ginger Beer.
You can add more or less ginger beer depending on how much you want to taste the ginger versus the Irish Whiskey.
Feel free to change up this recipe with more or less of any ingredient to find your perfect flavor.
Don't forget to add ice to your Moscow mule mug to get the perfect cold cocktail.
I highly suggest trying different Ginger Beer brands until you find the one you love. We tend to use Fever Tree but have heard amazing things about Bundaberg Ginger Beer.
If you are hosting a party you can easily set up a Moscow Mule area/table. Put out a bucket of ice, Irish Whiskey and Vodka, Limes, Lime Juice, and mint springs, and let your guests create their own perfect Mule.
You can also make this Irish Mule recipe in a pitcher and have it ready to serve your guests.
