The Missouri Mule Whiskey Cocktail is an excellent mixed drink which definitely kicks like a mule. The applejack and bourbon gives the punch and the lemon juice provides an extra sting. The color makes the drink seem innocent….until you take a sip! Once you have a couple or three of these, you probably will not be doing a whole lot of kicking yourself. I used Four Roses bourbon in the mix.
