The Glasgow Mule is a smoky and floral spin on the more ubiquitous Moscow Mule. Both recipes are built on a foundation of spirit, citrus and Ginger Beer, but the Glasgow Mule features the addition of sweet, fragrant Elderflower Liqueur and spiced Angostura Bitters for a more complex drinking experience.
Glasgow Mule Recipe:
2 oz blended Scotch whisky
.5 oz Elderflower Liqueur
.75 oz lemon juice
3 dashes Angostura bitters
4 oz Top Note Ginger Beer
Garnish: fresh lemon wheel, crystallized ginger
Stir all ingredients together in a mule mug or tall glass. Top up with crushed ice and garnish.
