Hayride

I’m a big fan of the Moscow Mule, a refreshing blend of vodka, lime juice & ginger beer. It’s incredibly refreshing and light, especially in the Summer and Spring. So, naturally, I wanted to concoct some sort of Autumnal version of it since I’m all about Autumn. Bourbon feels a bit more Fall-ish to me. It’s got a distinct flavor, a bit more bite and it has more of a warming quality. Obviously, the lime would be replaced by lemon because lemon and bourbon are best friends. However, it quickly became a whiskey sour with ginger beer. And whilst that is a delicious thing, it wasn’t quite what I was hoping for. I wanted something light and refreshing, but that would evoke a warm fall feeling and not a “oh dear god it’s so freakin hot out” feeling. That’s when I figured it would be best to just add in some apple cider. And that was it. That was the little twist.

The biggest questions is what to call this libation. Autumn Mule? New England Mule? What would a mule be in front of? A cart! Then Hayride came to be. Just in case you were wondering.
