Kentucky Pom Mule

The holidays can be very busy, so having an easy, festive cocktail to serve guests is a bonus when it comes to party hosting. The Kentucky Pom Mule has all the attributes of a holiday cocktail: the warmth of bourbon, effervescence of ginger beer, and the pleasing aroma of rosemary come together to create a refreshing cocktail that can be made in no time at all.
