An update to the classic Kentucky Mule, this Citrus and Spice Kentucky Mule is a little sweet, a little tart and very refreshing - with enough heft for cocktail enthusiasts as well as casual sippers.
For Kentucky Mule:
Combine bourbon, triple sec, lime juice and spiced syrup in a mixing glass with ice.
Stir 45 seconds to combine.
Pour over ice in a rocks glass.
Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan.
Bring to a boil over medium high heat.
Take off the heat and let infuse for 30 minutes.
Strain into a clean, lidded container.
Refrigerate for up to two weeks.
Use a good quality bourbon - either Elijah Craig or Woodford Reserve work well.
To extend the life of your spiced syrup, add 1 teaspoon vodka to the syrup.
