The Old Kentucky Mule is the official cocktail of Fall in my house. They’re spicy and sweet, but not too sweet.
I generally make them make them individually, but this would be an easy drink to make in larger quantities and serve in a pitcher. Perfect for parties!
Seriously, as soon as apple cider shows up in the grocery store, it’s a safe bet that I’m making and drinking these.
You need more Mules in your life. You know it. I know it. How about a Mexican Moscow Mule? There’s also the Pomegranate Champagne Moscow Mule. These Caramel Apple Moscow Mules also use apple cider and these Bourbon Moscow Mules use, well, you guessed it, bourbon.

In a copper mug over ice add the bourbon, apple cider, ginger beer, and lime juice. Stir gently.
Garnish the mug with a thin apple slice, if you're feeling fancy.
