Tequila Mule: A Refreshing Twist on a Classic

March 12, 2024

The Tequila Mule is a refreshing and zesty cocktail that offers a glorious twist on the classic Moscow Mule. Perfect for any season, but especially refreshing in the warmer months, this cocktail blends the boldness of tequila with the tangy zest of lime and the cool, invigorating touch of mint. Served in a traditional copper mug, the Tequila Mule not only tastes great but also provides a visually stunning presentation.


  • 2 ounces of premium tequila
  • ½ ounce of freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Ginger beer
  • Ice cubes


  • Lime wedge
  • Sprig of mint


  • Prepare the Copper Mug: Chill your copper mug by placing it in the freezer for a few minutes or filling it with ice while you prepare the ingredients.
  • Muddle the Mint: In the mug, gently muddle a few mint leaves to release their aromatic oils. Be careful not to over-muddle, as this can lead to a bitter taste.
  • Add Tequila and Lime Juice: Pour the tequila and freshly squeezed lime juice into the mug. The acidity of the lime perfectly complements the tequila’s robust flavor.
  • Add Ice: Fill the mug with ice, ideally to the top, to keep the drink cold and refreshing.
  • Top with Ginger Beer: Gently pour ginger beer over the ice. The ginger beer adds a spicy and slightly sweet fizz that enhances the overall flavor of the cocktail.
  • Garnish and Serve: Garnish with a wedge of lime and a sprig of mint. The garnish adds an extra layer of flavor and an appealing aesthetic touch.
  • Stir Gently: Give the drink a gentle stir to mix the ingredients.
  • Enjoy: Sip your Tequila Mule and enjoy the harmonious blend of flavors.

The Tequila Mule is an excellent choice for anyone looking to enjoy a classic cocktail with a twist. Its combination of tequila, lime, and mint, topped with ginger beer and served in a copper mug, makes it not only delicious but also a visual treat. It’s the perfect drink for relaxing on a warm evening or spicing up your next gathering.
