Tips for making good Kentucky Mule Cocktail.
1. Use only high quality bourbon.
2. Choose large ice cubes over small cubes or even crushed ice. If you are planning to slowly sipping on a cocktail, you dont want ice to melt and dilute the cocktail.
3. Dont use a premade store bought lime juice. Squeeze it right before serving, the difference in flavor is huge!
