Can I use ginger ale instead of ginger beer?

Ginger beer is the preferred bubbly soda to include in your bourbon mule. It has a pronounced, spicy ginger flavor. Ginger ale, on the other hand, is sweeter and has a more subtle flavor.

Can I use another type of alcohol instead of bourbon?

You can, however, when you swap the bourbon out you'll be making another variation of a mule. For example, a Moscow mule uses vodka and a Mexican mule uses tequila.

Do I need to serve a bourbon mule in a copper mug?

The copper mug is designed to keep a cold drink nice and frosty. If you don't have copper mugs you can absolutely use a regular glass.
