Oh, Moscow Mule, how we love thee! Let us count the ways. One… two. There are two reasons we love you. Your ginger-led kick, for one, and two, your very specific vessel requirement — a copper mug that, weirdly, doesn’t keep drinks colder or add anything to the taste, but definitely tells everyone exactly what we’re drinking.
To make the Apple Cider Mule, pour all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker and stir it good. If you shake it, it’s gonna go all over your kitchen. Fill that lovely copper mug with ice and strain the mixture into it. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and an apple slice.
– 4 oz. Kentucky bourbon – 6 oz. ginger beer – 1 oz. apple cider – 1 apple slice (optional) – 1 cinnamon stick (optional)
