1792 Signature Cocktails: American Mule

by Scott Wagner

Swap bourbon for vodka and leave Moscow behind

Inspiration can come from the most unexpected of places. That is particularly true when searching for variations on a delicious cocktail to serve guests at your next dinner party.

The Moscow Mule is a solid option for a vodka cocktail, particularly on a warm afternoon. But it lacks the best ingredient a cocktail could have: great bourbon. So, we’ve taken a little inspiration from our friends at Wheatley Vodka and given it a nice, 1792 Style spin.

You’ll need a mule mug made of copper and crushed ice for the ideal experience. If you don’t have a set, pick one up at Wayfair, which has a nice collection.

(Hint: Some bars will call this a Kentucky Mule. We think it’s bigger than just our home state.)

Na vashe zdorov’ye! (Russian for “Cheers!”)
