Moscow mules have been all the rage but for me? I don’t like Vodka so I never hopped on that bandwagon. That is, until I decided to swap out the vodka for Tequila and BOOM a star was born! Mexican Mules are now in the house and I am OBSESSED.
LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT
I am not a cocktail drinker (usually just beer and wine) but first decided to try the swap at Luce, a local restaurant here in San Diego. I also asked for them to add some type of pepper to make it spicy. Immediately after my first sip I said… wow that’s pretty good! And the rest was history. I looked up exactly what they put in their regular mule, made my swaps and additions and tried to make it at home. The recipe below is my “perfected” version.
Good news for you, is that my Mexican Mules are SUPER EASY to make! All you need are the following ingredients and voila! you have yourself a tasty and refreshing cocktail!
