Irish whiskey topped with fresh lemon juice, ginger beer, and ice. The Irish Mule is simple, delicious, and perfect for a quick cocktail with friends.
Hi! This is Andrea from Cooking with a Wallflower, and I’m back this month on Ask Anna to share with you a brand new recipe perfect for small gatherings.
How is it that we’re already in March?
I feel as if this year has gone by pretty quickly. Maybe it’s because there has been so much going on lately. With weekends filled with events and things to do, every week seems to pass by before I even know it. How has this year been treating you?
Let’s talk about this Irish Mule.
Since St Patrick’s Day is just days away, I thought I would share with you this Irish Mule. I’m obsessed with the classic Moscow Mule. Mostly because it’s an easy cocktail to make and it’s super refreshing. You can add your favorite hard liquor, mix in lemon or lime juice, and top with ginger beer. That way you can customize this cocktail however you like.
This has become one of my favorite cocktails to mix for when we have friends over for dinner and want to entertain. Most of the ingredients are things that we have in the fridge and in the pantry. So we’ll always be able to make this drink when we want to.
Enjoy this easy Irish Mule for St Patrick’s Day, and I will be back next month to share with you another recipe. Have a great March!
