What is a Crown Peach Mule?

A Crown peach Mule is a cocktail that uses Crown Royal peach whiskey instead of the classic vodka as a base. That’s why, instead of calling it a “Moscow Mule” referring to the vodka, this is actually known as a “Kentucky Mule”, reserved for whiskey or bourbon based drinks.

The peach whiskey is then combined with the classic Mule ingredients, like lime juice, mint, and ginger beer, which compliment the peach flavors well. You can also add some fresh peach juice or nectar for additional flavor!

It’s a perfect refreshing drink for summer, because of the fresh peach flavors, but also because it’s served iced in a cool copper mug.

Crown Peach Mule Recipe FAQs

Can I Use Regular Crown Royal Instead Of Crown Royal Peach?

While Crown Royal Peach provides a unique, fruity flavor, you can use regular Crown Royal and add a splash of peach schnapps or peach puree to mimic the peach flavor.

Alternatively, you can substitute other peach-flavored alcohols, such as peach schnapps or peach vodka instead.

Can I Make A Non-Alcoholic Version Of The Crown Peach Mule?

Yes, you can make a mocktail by substituting the Crown Royal Peach with peach juice or nectar.

Then, simply combine it with ginger beer and lime juice as normal. Add a sprig of mint to garnish for a fancy touch!

Is It Possible To Make A Crown Peach Mule Ahead Of Time?

It’s best to prepare Crown Peach Mules fresh to preserve the carbonation of the ginger beer.

However, you can pre-mix the Crown Royal Peach, peach juice, and lime juice, then add ginger beer and ice just before serving.

What Are Some Good Garnishes For A Crown Peach Mule?

Common garnishes include a slice of fresh peach, a sprig of mint, or a lime wedge.

You can also add a cinnamon stick for a hint of spice.

Can I Use Diet Ginger Beer For A Lower Calorie Drink?

Yes, you can use diet ginger beer to reduce the calorie content without significantly altering the flavor of the Crown Peach Mule.

You may also use ginger ale or diet ginger ale, if you prefer your ginger flavor with less “bite” to it.

What Foods Pair Well With A Crown Peach Mule?

This cocktail pairs well with light and flavorful foods such as grilled chicken, seafood, salads, and fresh fruit platters.

The peach and ginger flavors complement a variety of dishes.

Peach Whiskey Mule Recipe Tips

  • There are a variety of sizes of copper Mule mugs, so you’ll need to adjust the amount of ginger beer and ice accordingly to fill yours!
  • To make a stronger drink, add more whiskey, or supplement with peach schnapps. To make a weaker drink, reduce the whiskey to 1 ounce and add extra peach juice for flavor
  • For a sweeter drink, add extra peach juice, or supplement with honey, agave, or simple syrup. For a less sweet drink, use more lime juice, or omit the peach juice

Storage and Serving Tips For a Crown Peach Mule

  • A Crown peach Mule is best served fresh for best flavor. However, you can scale it for parties, mixing the whiskey, lime juice, and peach juice together up to 24 hours in advance. Store in a pitcher in the refrigerator, then add ice and ginger beer to individual glasses for serving
  • You can store leftovers in the fridge for up to 24 hours, but note that the ginger beer will lose fizziness and the ice will dilute the drink, so it won’t be as good as it was when fresh
