Oh, Cinco de Mayo, how I love you- the perfect excuse to eat all the guac and drink all the margs!
For this year’s Cinco de Mayo celebrations I wanted to try out a new cocktail. While I was in Puerto Rico I had a “Mexican Mule” at one of the bars we went to. I love re-creating cocktails I try out so I knew instantly this one was going to be on my list to try at home. It’s a variation on the classic Moscow Mule cocktail, replacing vodka with tequila. I love that I have all of the ingredients at home usually, making it an easy one to make on demand.
I had to give it a try before serving it for Cinco de Mayo so MJD had a few during a date night in a few weekends ago. It pairs perfectly with fresh guacamole too and is super refreshing. This may just be a new summer cocktail of mine 😉
How are you planning to celebrate Cinco de Mayo?
Makes one cocktail:
- 2 ounces tequila
- 5 ounces ginger beer
- 1 ounce club soda
- Lime juice
- Lime to garnish
In a glass filled with ice, combine tequila and ginger beer. Stir to combine.
Top off with splash of club soda and lime juice.
Add lime wedge to garnish.
Cheers- and Happy Cinco de Mayo!
