THE LE BAR MULE

THE LE BAR MULE

The Le Bar Mule from the first sip was an automatic 4.5 Stars! I asked my waitress Natalie to order a Moscow Mule with a double shot of Tito’s Handmade Vodka this time. The results will astound you.

For starters the le bar mule came in a very tall glass. Since the glass was tall, I only took a half-star off for not serving this in a copper cup. I wish I could give this drink a full five stars but the rules are the rules. No copper cup. No 5 stars.

I took a sip of this glory while sitting outside on the Le Bar Patio on Rush street and the environment is exquisite for such a random spot. Le Bar is a component to the Sofitel Luxury Hotel in Chicago. The first sip was full of ginger beer which made me extremely happy. I love the kick of ginger in Moscow mules. That’s the entire point of a Moscow Mule- it should kick your throat with ginger!

As time passed the mule’s feeling set in. The buzz from this one is amazing. This buzz is smooth and steady yet controllable and enjoyable. This mule was fresh and cold with plenty of ice. I even let it water down but the taste prevailed! This means the the preparation of this mule was perfect.

When the ice in your drink doesn’t water down its taste then the drink is a winner! No whiskey stones needed. I am beyond impressed with this mule and I want to see Le Bar show attention to their champion drink and give it an official copper cup! I will probably review this mule again in the future. Until then, the Metropolitan Mule highly recommends the Le Bar Mule for a refreshingly good feeling. Lux Bar,  watch out!
