Meet the Southern cousin of the Moscow Mule with a little twist – The Apple Kentucky Mule! Pair a shot of Wild Turkey Bourbon, with apple juice, a squeeze of lime and top it off with ginger beer!
When I first saw the combination of ginger beer mixed with apple juice in Scotland, I was a little sceptical. But after my first sip, I was convinced that this would be my new favorite cocktail!
Back in Vienna I tried it for the first time with Bourbon instead of whiskey and I must say that I really liked the smoother, less-smokey taste of it. I find Bourbon to be slightly sweeter and to have a subtle caramel note. And then I saw that Matthew McConnaughey was the new brand ambassador for Wild Turkey and I was sold :D They couldn’t have found a better fit for the brand!
And because I really want do more recipe videos, I made a video for my Apple Kentucky Mule. This is the first video that I did all by myself! I must admit that I had quite a few Kentucky Mules while trying to figure out my editing software ;)
- a handful of ice cubes
- 2 cl Bourbon (Wild Turkey)
- juice of half a lime
- 100 ml apple juice, chilled
- 100 ml ginger beer, chilled
- Fill a glass with ice. Pour in the Bourbon, lime juice, apple juice and ginger beer. Enjoy!
I hope you enjoy it and let me know if you try it out!
