Irish Mule

dsc01494

I am obsessed with anything that means I have to buy a new glass or cute plate. When Moscow Mules became the new thing, I wanted to like them so bad. The little copper cups were the cutest things I’ve ever seen. But I just really don’t enjoy vodka all that much. I guess I had one too many rough nights in my early twenties with the stuff. But last year when Chris started making Irish Mules, I fell in love!

Throughout the fall Chris and I would have these a few times a week. They’re so yummy and the fresh lime makes it such a refreshing drink. And best part: we get to drink them out of these cute little copper mugs. Bar ware is my weakness.

The recipe is super simple and only requires three ingredients. But you definitely need to find a good ginger beer that you like because cheap ginger beer can definitely ruin the whole drink. We usually use Seagram’s. Next time you are in the mood for something refreshing, make one of these… super yummy.

Ice (in a copper mug.. eee)

1 ½ oz Jameson whiskey

½ lime, juiced and dropped in for garnish

Fill with Seagram’s ginger beer
