  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 4 oz apple cider
  • 4 oz ginger beer
  • ice

*It is not recommended to substitute the ginger beer in this recipe with ginger ale. Ginger ale is much sweeter than ginger beer, which isn’t needed with the apple cider in this cocktail recipe. Additionally, ginger ale doesn’t have that ginger kick that ginger beer does, which will leave your cocktail without that big ginger punch you are expecting in a mule cocktail.
