For my boyfriend’s birthday I made him a fun little gift basket which contained all the ingredients he needed for his favorite cocktail, a Moscow Mule, along with the traditional copper mug (which keeps the cocktail icy cold!). He enjoys his slightly different though and prefers Tequila in lieu of vodka. I also had him try one with the habanero infused tequila I made for margaritas a few weeks ago and he vouched that it was refreshing and spicy, a great combination for summer!
Juice from 1 lime
2 oz (2 shots) of silver tequila (or try habanero infused tequila to give this Mule a real kick!)
6 oz ginger beer or ginger ale (any brands will do)
Squeeze lime juice into a Collins glass or copper mug and drop in one of the spent lime halves. Add 4 or 5 ice cubes, pour in tequila, and then top with cold ginger beer. Stir and serve!
