This cocktail combines two of my favorite cocktail-y things: Bourbon and Moscow Mules
Bourbon Moscow Mules combine bourbon, lime juice, and ginger beer to make one seriously delicious cocktail.
Okay yeah, you know that I love bourbon.
I also love a good Moscow Mule. This version brings my two loves together.
So, how does this drink come together?
Start with a classic Moscow Mule. Pivot slightly by subbing bourbon for vodka. And there we have it: a Bourbon Moscow Mule.
It’s a drink that’s somehow greater than the sum of its parts.
What equipment should I have on hand to make these Mules?
- A cocktail jigger to measure the bourbon
- A citrus squeezer to get all of the juice out of your lime(s)
- Copper mugs to keep your Mule frosty and cold
- 1.5 oz bourbon
- 1/2 lime, juiced
- ginger beer
- lime wedge for garnish (optional)
Pour the bourbon, lime juice, and ginger beer over ice (in a copper mug, please).

Yeah, you do. And I’ve got you covered.
A Maple Bourbon Moscow Mule is the (somehow!) even more Autumn-y version of the present cocktail.
