For connoisseurs of American whiskey, everything goes better with bourbon. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint to give it that Southern touch. Any straight bourbon from Kentucky will do, but you can’t go wrong with Bulleit or Cooper’s Mark.
Nothing gets a party started like a little tequila! We recommend a sliver variety for its lightness and versatility. Or if you want to impart some smokiness, you can try reposado tequila, but make sure it’s 100% blue agave. Try Los Rijos Silver Tequila.
You can’t go wrong with the silky smoothness of Irish Whiskey as a base spirit. It makes for a beautiful balance when paired with the zesty ginger beer and tart lime juice, and it’ll have your guests doing a jig. Try Old Tom Horan Irish Whiskey.
Gin Gin Mule
This modern classic was invented in the late-90s in New York City. It’s a snappy combination of London dry gin, Jamaican ginger beer and muddled mint. If you really want to fancy it up, garnish it with candied ginger. Try Balfour Street London Dry Gin.
Cranberry Moscow Mule
Let’s face it: the classics never go out of style, but it never hurts to give an age-old recipe a seasonal twist. Stock your Mule Bar with rosemary, cranberry juice and fresh cranberries to add some festive flair. Try 1941 Craft Vodka.
