Step-by-step

How to make

  1. MAKE GINGER SYRUP: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, stir together 1 part sugar, with 2 parts fresh ginger and 2 parts water until sugar dissolves. Increase heat slightly, then simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Strain the liquid to remove the ginger pieces and pour into an empty bottle. Refrigerate syrup until cold, about 2 hours.
  2. MAKE THE MIDLETON MULE: Fill a shaker with ice. Then, add your Jameson Original, lime juice and ginger syrup.
  3. Shake and strain into a copper mule mug filled with ice. Fill up with some ginger beer.
  4. Finish with a flourish of green with a lime wedge as a garnish.

About this Cocktail

A refreshing twist on the classic Moscow Mule. The ever-growing love story between Irish Whiskey and ginger working fantastically together once again. Actually created in Manhattan rather than Moscow, these simple ginger cocktails are almost as famous for the copper mug they come in, as they are for their incredible taste.
