Easy Tennessee Whiskey Mule Recipe made with Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey, Ginger Beer, and Fresh Lime Juice.
Tennessee Whiskey Mule
This Whiskey Mule is a great twist on a classic Moscow Mule made with vodka.
If you like Moscow Mules make sure to also check out our Tequila Mule and Kentucky Mule made with Bourbon. We have a Blue Mule coming up soon and a Orange Mule for more fun twists.
The base cocktail using ginger beer and lime is so much fun to adapt to seasons and what sounds good. My husband is a huge fan of high quality bourbon whiskeys. So much so that for Christmas I bought him a Waterford crystal decanter to store his favorite bourbon or whiskey.
I am waiting to see which one he chooses to fill the decanter.
Until then I surprised him with making a batch of these Tennessee Mule Drinks one afternoon we were diving into cleaning out our emails and making a plan for this year. It was tedious work and this refreshing cocktail was the perfect cold drink.
Did you know they now sell Moscow Mules in cans at the grocery store. I haven't tried one yet since it is so easy to whip up a fresh cocktail at home and know that it is going to taste amazing. I get a bit worried about premade cocktails since you can't adapt them to your favorite flavors.
It is so easy to make this cocktail with no shaking or stirring really required.
- Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey
- Ginger Beer
- Lime Juice
- Crushed Ice
Garnish - Lime Wedge
Great Tennessee Whiskeys include Jack Daniels, George Dickel, Rollins, Corsair, or Uncle Nearest. You do not need to use a super expensive whiskey since it is getting mixed with the ginger beer and lime. A great mid-priced whiskey is perfect for this cocktail. We love finding new whiskeys while visiting local distilleries.
Optional - Mint Leaves. You can muddle mint leaves to add additional flavor to this Moscow mule recipe. You can add a few drops of aromatic bitters to change up the flavor.
Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice is going to taste the best but you can use Rose's Lime Juice if you don't have any fresh limes available.
Moscow Mule Mug - The copper mugs are the perfect way to make this twist on a Moscow Mule. They keep the drink really cold and look cool. If you don't have copper mugs you can use a highball glass.
We really suggest buying a couple of copper mugs so you have them. It is well worth picking a couple of them up to enhance your Moscow Mule cocktails.
You can add or decrease the amount of whiskey in this mule recipe to fit your needs.
Ginger beer is different from ginger ale. Using ginger ale will change the flavor of this cocktail.
