A classic drink that has become more well-known recently is the Irish Mule. This drink is a variation on the Moscow Mule, which is a vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice concoction. Irish whiskey is used in lieu of vodka in the Irish Mule, giving it a distinctive flavor and personality.
The Irish Mule is a delightfully light cocktail that goes well with anything. With a spicy kick from the ginger beer, it tastes smooth and faintly sweet.
The lime juice gives the beverage a hint of tanginess that counteracts the richness of the whiskey and ginger beer.
Each sip of the beverage becomes cooler and more energizing thanks to its customary serving vessel, a copper mug.
