Winter Spiced Mule

With our recently posts on bitters and ginger beer, we thought a perfect cocktail that calls for both is the Winter Spiced Mule. If you are  looking for a cocktail to spice up the holidays, this is it.

1½ oz Aviation Gin

1 teaspoon Apple butter

¾ oz Freshly pressed lime juice

2 dashes Saffron cardamom bitters*

1½ oz Ginger beer


In a pint mixing glass, add spirits and mixers (through ginger beer).  Fill with ice.  Shake vigorously.  Strain into a double rocks glass filled with ice.  Top with ginger beer.  Garnish with a star anise pod.


*To make saffron cardamom bitters: Place 750ml of vodka, pinch of saffron and 2 oz of cardamom pods in a jar. Seal and shake daily for one week. Strain into a clean sealable jar for future use.
