Apricot Mule – for Razz

When I wrote about the St Patrick’s Day cocktail-fest for London Bloggers at Diageo, Australia-based Razzbuffnik liked the sound of the Bushmills apricot mule, so I asked Haran at Splendid Communications to send me the recipe. Here you go, Razz! A little taste of summer for you as the leaves start to turn in the land Downunder…

Bushmills Apricot Mule (Classic adapted by Duncan McRae)

This twist on a classic Moscow mule uses Bushmills Black Bush® as its base, and combines the subtle flavours of apricot and the spicy ginger to play upon some of the more exciting sherry cask induced notes found in Bushmills® Black Bush.

50ml Bushmills Black Bush

12.5ml Apricot Liquor

12.5ml Sugar Syrup

25ml Freshly squeezed Lime juice

Dash Orange Bitters

Topped up with Ginger Beer.

Served in a highball glass over ice.

    Thanks for that. I’m looking forward to trying it.

    If a drink involves mixing more than 2 things, I leave it to the trained professionals behind the bar.
    I even stay away from Corona beer because it involves a lime and a worm … or something like that.

    Razz – you’re welcome. Just let me know how it turns out.

    PR – if I ever came across a Corona with lime AND a worm in it, I’ll be thinking of you… I think you just may have conceived a new drink there. (smiley face)

    Rax, when are we going to get together next? Are you coming to the next LBM on 28th? Perfect opportunity to discuss matrimonial topics and apricot mules.
