Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with this refreshing, Leprechaun approved recipe! 

We put a spin on the classic vodka mule recipe by adding Wigle Rye Whiskey to compliment the holiday. Adding lime, simple syrup + sage with Natrona ginger beer puts a unique, flavorful twist on this cocktail. 



  • 2 oz. Irish whiskey
  • 6 oz. ginger beer (or more!)
  • ½ - ¾ oz. of simple syrup
  • Juice of half a lime (about 1 ounce)
  • Lime slices (optional, for garnish)
  • Sage sprig (optional, for garnish)
  • Ice (crushed if possible)
  1. Fill a Moscow Mule mug (or rocks glass if you don’t have a mug!) with crushed ice
  2. Squeeze in lime juice 
  3. Pour in the whiskey - we used a local Pittsburgh company, Wigle Whiskey, for our brand of choice, but your favorite whiskey is a perfect addition!
  4. Fill with cold ginger beer -  we used the local Natrona Bottling Company’s classic variation for our ginger beer brand of choice! 
  5. Serve with a stirring rod.
  6. Add sage + muddle (*optional*)
  7. Add a lime wedge for garnish (*optional*)


Ginger beer is to taste! If you like more of a whiskey taste, add less ginger beer. For a milder drink, add more!
