If you love the Moscow Mule as much as we do, you may have experimented with other ways to make it. If you're anything like us, however, it's nice to have a guide instead of flying blindly in the kitchen. That's why we've tested and approved these 4 easy takes on the classic Moscow Mule recipe. Each of these delicious drinks is made with fresh lime juice and ginger beer, but the comparisons end there. Each recipe also includes ingredients that make them into something with a distinct personality. Say you're in the mood for tequila, you might want to make our Mexican Mule. Or if you prefer bourbon, it's time you try the famous Kentucky Mule. No matter which you choose to go with, you'll love how simple each of these recipes is to make, and how amazingly refreshing and tasty each of them is!
