Original Horses Neck Recipe

This was the Irish Mule before ordering an Irish Mule became a thing. Dating back to the 1890s this drink as originally a non alcoholic drink that folks started to fortify with brandy or whiskey because, why not? Only real difference between this and an Irish Mule is this drink has a large lemon peel for flavor where as an Irish Mule has a bit of lime juice for that citrus flavor.
