In Canada we have a nice honey and whisky based spirit called Yukon Jack. So, I began to think of what might work well starting with rum and Yukon Jack.
In my cupboard I saw a can of Ginger Beer and I decided to make a “mule” style cocktail based upon mixing Rum with Yukon Jack and Ginger Beer. It is tall, refreshing, and delicious. I call it, The Klondike Mule.
The Klondike Mule
1 1/2 oz Amber Rum
3/4 oz Yukon Jack
juice from 1/2 Lime
1/2 oz sugar syrup
Fill a tall glass with ice
Add the Amber Rum, the Yukon Jack, the sugar syrup and the Lime Juice
Top with Ginger Beer
Garnish with a lemon or a lime slice
Here is a tip. If you do not have Yukon Jack, just sub Southern Comfort and call it the Comfortable Caribbean Mule!
