Irish Mule

The Irish Mule cocktail is a refreshing drink that is great to beat the heat of summer. It is a mix of one shot of Irish whiskey, ginger ale, and lime juice. It was invented in Ireland in 1948 by Jack Koeppler in the spirit’s market town in County Cork. Although. this drink became popular in New York City in 1951 when Joe Schenk made it for John Wayne at the Stork Club Bar. The ginger ale gives it a light, spicy flavor and makes it perfect for people who don't like their drinks too sweet or sugary.
