I’m a huge fan of the Moscow Mule which is made with Vodka. But lately I’ve been on a total margarita kick and I’m finding that I really enjoy tequila. Not like I’m out doing shots or anything (Tammy, Kristin, Lauren – please hide those photos). So I decided to try out a Mexican Mule. I quite like it and I think you will too.
You will need a lime, Tequila (now I know there are different types of tequila but I don’t know enough about them to pin point a specific one to use. This is what we had in our cupboard) and ginger beer (Reed’s is my fave brand and is available at Sprouts and Trader Joe’s).
Juice from 1 lime (approximately 1 – 2 ounces depending on your flavor preferences)
1 1/2 – 2 ounces of Tequila
Reed’s Ginger Beer
In a glass, squeeze the lime juice. Add ice. Add tequila and top with ginger beer. Mix. Add a lime garnish of your liking. If you have fresh mint, you can also give a leaf a quick clap in your hand to release the oils and garnish with it as well.
