Lord Honey, one of my favorite bourbon cocktails is a Kentucky Mule. A typical mule cocktail contains liquor, lime juice and ginger beer--a Moscow mule contains vodka, a Texas mule has tequila, and a Kentucky mule--of course has bourbon. I add just a splash of lemon-lime soda and a touch of berry to make my "Kentucky Blackberry Mule" a refreshing bourbon treat. Cheers Y'all!!
