Well, we'll tell you. Rye grain is known as a spice-forward grain. This allows for the spiciness of the rye to complement the spice of the ginger beer. In turn, creating a more complex, rich, and delicious cocktail. Just add ginger beer and lime.
If you prefer your mules on the sweet side, we suggest adding 1/2oz of simple syrup or using a sweeter ginger beer, like Barritt's. However, if you prefer a little more spice in your mule, we suggest using Blenheim's Ginger Ale. Or maybe you're feeling frisky and want a booze-heavy cocktail. In that case, use Saranac Ginger Beer or another alcoholic ginger beer (you can find these in the beer section of your local supermarket).
2oz Boundary St. Rye Whiskey
3/4oz lime juice (fresh is best)
4oz Ginger Beer
In a copper mug over crushed ice, add whiskey, lime juice and ginger beer, respectively. Garnish with a lime wedge or don't. You can also make this in a rocks glass with regular ice. The choice is yours.
