Method

Add all the ingredients into the Mule without mixing them in a cocktail shaker, as we want to maintain the carbonation of the Ginger Beer. Squeeze one or two fresh limes. Crush ice and add it into the Mule. Add plenty of lime slices for garnish.

For the tequila fans out there, the Mexican Mule cocktail is for you.

This drink combines fresh lime juice and ginger beer to create a refreshing and invigorating beverage that is perfect for hot summer days. Add a splash of tequila and top with a slice of lime and you’ve got yourself a delicious cocktail.

The original recipe for this drink was created as a variation of the Moscow Mule, that is made with vodka. The Moscow Mule had been created in New York City in 1941 by Jack Morgan, owner of the Cock’n Bull restaurant, and two friends.

The Mexican Mule takes its name from the copper mug it’s traditionally served in—it’s said that copper mugs help keep drinks cold longer because they conduct heat more slowly than glass or plastic cups do.
