The perfect dash of heat kicks up the flavor in this seasonal twist on a classic mule!

Fall Sips: Spicy Kentucky Mule Kick

When we think of perfect fall cocktails, a few come to mind. We love a traditional mule and we love a classic Bloody Mary in the fall, so we thought why not combine those flavors and usher in the season with a cocktail that brings the heat? Our Spicy Kentucky Mule Kick will spice up your tailgate, outdoor gathering or holiday party with just the right amount of heat and flavor!

Our Spicy Kentucky Mule Kick brings together the fresh and bubbly, yet subtle spice and hint of peppery sweet ginger beer with the tart compliment of fresh lime juice and the perfect amount of heat from our Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon Barrel-Aged Pepper Sauce. Our Barrel-Aged Pepper Sauce brings a rich and just right smoky flavor from bourbon barrel-aged ghost pepper mash. Just a dash goes a long way in all of our favorite recipes from breakfast to cocktails!
