A moscow mule is one of the most refreshing cocktails imaginable. I love the fizzines and kick of ginger beer combined with a refreshing bite of lime. Today’s recipe is a Moscow Mule with a fun summer twist – the Mexican Mule.
When you go to the bar and order a Moscow Mule, it most likely involves vodka, ginger beer (or ginger simple syrup like my original recipe), and lime. The tastiness of the mule almost always goes back to the quality and potency of the ginger beer. For this particular cocktail, a little ginger ale just won’t cut it for me. When I discovered Barritt’s Ginger Beer, I was instantly inspired to build this cocktail!
So I grabbed some of my favorite Barritt’s Ginger Beer from my local grocery store (find out where you can buy it here) to put a twist on the classic mule recipe! Today I’m swapping the vodka for tequila and adding a zing with some jalapeno. Hello Mexican Mule!
Barritt’s Ginger Beer comes in a regular and diet option, too. I tasted both and it is virtually impossible to tell the difference, so pick what works for your lifestyle! I like my ginger beer to be strong and fizzy, and Barritt’s easily fits the bill. For this recipe I picked out the original glass bottles, but it also comes in cans for sipping by the pool.
