Mexican Mule

This is another  great 'Summer' Cocktail that is a variation of the Moscow Mule - but with Tequila instead of Vodka.

Using Tequila instead of Vodka adds a new and incredibly different dimension.  As per the Moscow Mule, the ginger beer tingles the taste buds, the lime squeezed adds a zip and sparkle.  The Tequila adds sunshine and great visions of Mexico (well, after a few at least).

If you have in your dressing-up box a bright-coloured Poncho, a wide brimmed Sombrero, a droopy moustache and love having a fake spray tan - then get them all and then enjoy this brilliant Cocktail - life will never be the same; Guaranteed.

  • 2x shot Tequila
  • 1/4x Shot Freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Top-up Quality Ginger Beer
How to make one: 
  1. Add all the ingredients into the Cocktail shaker over ice except the Ginger Beer
  2. Strain into a ice-filled glass
  3. Top-up with Ginger Beer

The story of the Moscow Mule is now known, however who actually substituted Tequila for Vodka is unknown or from which country the original Mixologist hailed from.  Like all good Mixologists, they 'play around' with the classics adding and substituting ingredients to see what happens; what flavours emerge, what textures, the colours and how it feels on the palette.  I have a feeling on this occasion this is exactly what happened - and not necessarily a Mexican Mixologist.  We all know Tequila and fresh Lime Juice work superbly together - so why not add a Jamaican Ginger Beer?  Jamaica and Mexico are not too far apart.

Glassware For This Cocktail

Coupe - Champagne Saucer
This Cocktail glass also known as "The Champagne saucer glass" was first created and used widely in the 1930's. Characterized by a tall stem and wide bowl. The Cocktail drinker's nose inhales the aroma, fragrance and bouquet of the cocktail - be it heady or delicate from the expansive bowl. The Coupe Cocktail glass was the original Champagne glass for literally the first half of the 20th century before the Champagne flute became popular in the 1950's and 1960's and subsequently took over as the glass to drink Champagne.
