Drink Recipe: The Michigan Cherry Mule

My (Austin Burk) recipe.



Takes me back to trips to the Upper Peninsula.

Note that this contains ginger ale rather than ginger beer.

The Michigan Cherry Mule


- 2.5 oz of Michigan cherry infused vodka (Increase by 0.5 oz to amplify cherry flavor)

- 0.5 oz of cucumber vodka 

- 0.5 oz of fresh lime juice

- 4 oz of Vernors ginger ale

- Splash of cherry juice (optional, adds extra cherry flavor)

- Garnish: Lime wheel and fresh, Michigan cherries


1. Fill a mule mug or highball glass with ice.

2. Pour in the Michigan cherry-infused vodka and fresh lime juice.

3. If using, add a splash of cherry juice.

4. Top with Venors ginger ale, filling the glass.

5. Stir gently to combine.

6. Garnish with a lime wheel and fresh Michigan cherries, on a kebab.

I first tried this, an earlier revision of it, at REO Pub in Lansing, MI — Vanessa mixed it for me to try out :)
