Topped off with whipped cream and cinnamon, this drink will have you relaxing fast. This is the perfect after dinner drink perhaps for Thanksgiving or even Christmas dinner.

The Kentucky Mule
Roll your lime on the counter with the palm of your hand to soften it and bruise the fruit a little making it easier to retrieve all of the juice inside. Cut the lime in half. Set your 100% pure copper mug filled 3/4 of the way full with ice on the counter and squeeze the juice of the entire lime into the mug using your lemon squeezer press to ensure that you get the most out of that lime. Pour one to one and a half shots of bourbon or Irish whiskey into your copper mug. Top off the mug with about one half of a can of Barrit’s ginger beer until the mug is full. Pour the content from the mug into your alcohol shaker and then back into your mug. You may garnish with a little mint and a slice of lime if you want to get really fancy. Now your Kentucky mule is ready to be enjoyed during the McGregor vs. Mayweather fight 2017. See the video below for a tutorial on these instructions:
- 1 100% pure copper mug filled 3/4 of the way with ice

Rogue Pumpkin Patch Ale
This one is as easy as picking it up at the local liquor store. JONGO would warn against opening a pumpkin beer too early as it will definitely start you thinking fall and cooler temperature!
Rare is the pumpkin beer that’s actually brewed with pumpkin. And not only does Rogue Ales roast and add the gourds, but the brewery grows their own next to its 42-acre hop yard. At harvest, the pumpkin are whisked away to the brewery and combined with cinnamon, vanilla bean, ginger, cloves, cardamom and Rogue’s own hops. Many fall beers say “pumpkin” on their label, Rogue actually delivers that promise. 5.6%
While we are talking about fall beers here at JONGO we couldn’t leave out our favorite Oktoberfest beer in Surly’s SurlyFest!
Bucking tradition, Surly Brewing created a fall lager like no other. Using malted rye and a heaping share of spicy, floral Sterling hops, SurlyFest bears little resemblance to the traditional, bready Festbiers of Munich. The masterful brewers at Surly, however, do use the customary Vienna-roast barley that combined with the rye, creates a subtle toasted caramel counterpoint to the big peppery, citrus hops. 6%
