The Mayan Mule is a variation on the Moscow Mule. Instead of the flavorless vodka, we use Reposado tequila, which has a nice balanced flavor of agave and wood. This cuts the lime and ginger beer, making a balanced drink.
For making crushed ice, I highly recommend the Neat Ice Kit by Studio Neat. (Thanks for ours, Sean!) It is the best way to make perfectly clear ice at home. It contains an ice mold, wooden muddler, steel chisel, and canvas Lewis bag.
- 2 oz Reposado tequila
- 1/2 oz lime juice
- 2 dashes bitters
- 3 oz ginger beer
- Crushed ice
Fill a mule mug with crushed ice. Pour in the lime juice, reposado, and bitters, then top off with the ginger beer. Garnish with a lime wheel and mint sprig.
