Summer Cocktails – Meet the Kentucky Mule
Category: Ice Machines
The Kentucky Mule is a special little cocktail that's a guaranteed hit for any summer gathering. The cocktail – adapted from the Moscow Mule – features mint, lime, ginger, whisky, and a whole lot of ice.
Read on to learn how to wow your friends this summer with a Kentucky Mule.
What You’ll Need
A good cocktail relies on having the right high-quality ingredients and some basic equipment. Here's everything you'll need to get the mule kicking
Firstly, get a few mint leaves and a lime. Cut the lime into quarters, but leave the mint leaves intact – you’ll muddle them into the recipe in a moment.
Muddling the Waters
Next, throw your mint leaves and a quarter of the lime into your muddler. Muddle up the ingredients until there's nothing left to muddle.
Ice and Booze
Now you’ll want to get a generous amount of ice from your ice maker and add it to the shaker. Then pour around 45 millilitres – that’s two and a half shots – over the ice, mint leaves, and mint. Put the lid on your shaker and, shake it, but gently; just enough to mix the flavours.
The Final Touches
The drink is almost finished now, but there are a few final steps. First, pour the shaken ingredients into one of your copper mugs. Now gently pour in about 120 millilitres of ginger beer. You can add a little more if you have a sweet tooth or a little less if you like that alcoholic kick.
Cut a lime wheel and make a little slice so you can pop it on the side of the mug, lay a mint leaf or two on top, and it’s ready to enjoy!
You will be the hit of the party with your very own ice machine. Get yours today and start making your summer, autumn, winter and spring cocktails.
