It’s finally starting to feel like summer, and it’s looking like we’re not going to make it to the beach. While it’s a bummer, there are plenty of summer activities to keep my spirits up!
As you know, The Fellow and I love to spend our evenings out on our porch grilling and relaxing. I’ve found that there are few things as enjoyable as sitting down, enjoying good food, and a warm summer breeze with a good drink in your hand.
The Fellow drinks beer, and since I reserve moonshine for special occasions and the holidays, I typically drink wine or cider when I’m not drinking tea. A while back a friend introduced me to a new drink that I think you’ll love too – a Mexican Mule!
Copper Mule Mugs have been all the rage for a year or two now, but I’ve never gotten into experimenting too much with them. The traditional drink you make in them is a Moscow Mule which uses Ginger Beer, vodka, and lime. The Mexican Mule is a variation on that as you switch out tequila for the vodka.
I love this drink because it’s simple and easy. (If you want to spice it up some, check out this recipe from I’m Bored, Let’s Go.)
I’ve been waiting for warmer weather to truly enjoy this. I’m sure that it’s a treat on a hot day.
- Ginger Beer
- Pour ginger beer into a copper mule mug
- Add 1 shot of tequila
- Squeeze 1 lime edge into the cup
- Garnish with a lime slice
The ginger is crisp and refreshing, a single shot of tequila cuts the ginger just a bit and is great for sipping, and the lime adds a nice little twist.
Perfect for cooling down on a warm summer day!
Try it and tell me what you think!
