How to Craft a Basil Mule That Will Quench Your Thirst

Basil Mule

I’m a sucker for a mule, especially in the summer! We took a trip over to Grand Rapids this past spring –My baby sister got engaged 🙂 and hit up New Holland Brewery for some spirits. Their KNICKERBOCKER Ginger Gin has always been my favorite but we drove home with a bottle of KNICKERBOCKER Lemon Basil Gin this time and boy was that a great idea! We’ve crafted an amazingly crisp mule that is light and refreshing.

Plus, it’s local and supporting local business is a win for everyone! #michiganstrong #supportlocalbusinesses #mittenmade
