Happy World Whisky Day, everyone!
Do you prefer your whisky straight or in a cocktail? Either way for me.
Do you enjoy sharing a good whiskey with friends, but recent Twitter images of unmasked patrons in crowded bars amid the loosening of COVID restrictions got you down? No worries!
If you have some bourbon at home, celebrate World Whisky Day with my simple-but-tasty Kentucky Mule.
What You’ll Need
- 4-5 oz. ginger beer
- 1.5 oz. whisky (Bourbon is best.)
- lime wedge
- copper mug (Preferable, but any old mug or glass will do.)
Ice Your Mug
If you don’t have a copper mug, no big deal. But I like it because the cold metal keeps your drink cold. Go ahead and fill it with ice.
Pick Your Poison
Add Ginger Beer
About 4.5 ounces will do, but use whatever amount you want.
Add a Lime Wedge
This, too, is optional, but it does add a little bit of oomph to your whole concoction. I like to squeeze a little fresh lime into my drink before I stir the whole thing. Throw the lime wedge in for extra color. . . You might notice I didn’t need an itty bitty cutting board to execute this step.
Hopefully the weather is warming up where you live, so take your Mule outside.
Grab your drink, hunker down, and ride out this pandemic with a cool whisky buzz. Don’t let World Whisky (or Whiskey) Day go to waste this year!
