Get your Bourbon fix with this refreshingly flavorful Bourbon Basil Mule. This take on the classic drink, the Moscow Mule, is perfect for fall and football season.

Bourbon Basil Mule

3-4 basil leaves

1/2 lime juiced and zested

1.5 oz Bulleit Bourbon

Ginger beer (Goslings works well with this drink and of course Fever Tree is always a good choice)

Basil leaves to garnish


Place basil leaves in a tumbler glass or copper mule mug and muddle. Squeeze the lime juice into the glass. Fill the glass with ice. Add bourbon then top with ginger beer and stir. Garnish with basil leaves.
