The Moscow Mule (the original recipe calls for Vodka) has been around since the early 1940s. A quality ginger beer and a wedge of lime is all it takes to turn spirits into something sweet, spicy, and bubbly. Its iconic copper mug keeps everything ice cold, making it our favorite warm-weather cocktail.

Jalapeño Mezcal Mule

“That sounds interesting. I’ll try it.” This is how people get hooked on this spicy cocktail. It’s hot, but the finish is soothing, which makes you want another sip.

Apply a pro tip for this drink: Use large ice cubes and an aggressive shake to thoroughly blend the drink and cut apart the mint leaves.

You’ll want to use a good-quality ginger beer rather than ginger ale, whose sugariness will overpower the subtle maple flavor. Think spicy winter tang, not summery sweetness.
