Pear Irish Mule

Comments

There’s a secret to creating the BEST mule cocktail you’ve ever had. I learned about it from the Soho House and once you make it with this, you will know why!! A mule should be full of strong ginger and spice flavor, which sometimes ginger beer can’t do alone! Making the mule with a strong ginger simple syrup is key and to make the ginger syrup really strong you have to use ginger juice instead of water! Or this pre-made ginger syrup is AMAZING too! It’s honestly so good. I can tell every time I go to a restaurant if they use ginger beer or ginger syrup! It makes that much of a difference! For this Pear Irish Mule we used pear puree and whiskey, which totally compliment the ginger! I actually love whiskey in a Mule… if you haven’t had it, try it!!

And to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day, we’ve teamed up with some of my favorite bloggers who are sharing festive and fun drinks for Saint Patrick’s Day entertaining!! Click on each photo to take you to the recipe!! CHEERS!
