We had the Young Buck at Bourbon and Branch on our last trip to San Francisco. This is our re-creation. It’s a grown-up non-alcoholic drink — very dry and refreshing. If you prefer your drinks sweeter, you can increase the percentage of pineapple juice.
This drink is a variation on the basic virgin mule.
The ginger beer. Fever Tree is our favorite ginger beer to use in cocktails. It’s dry and gingery.
