Kentucky Mule Cocktail

Ice
1/2 Lime + one lime wheel for garnish
3 sprigs fresh mint leaves, divided
2 ounces of your favorite bourbon
Chilled ginger beer

Start by crushing your ice. You can do this by simply wrapping up a good handful of ice in a clean towel and crush it with either a rolling pin or a muddler. Set aside.

Next, juice your lime by squeezing it directly into the Moscow Mule Mug, then toss in the mint leaves and muddle it all together. Fill the rest of the mug with ice, pour in your bourbon, and top it off with ginger beer until full. Garnish with a lime and a sprig of mint and serve it up.
