Tipple Tuesday: Mayan Mule

Put down your tacos and skip the transformation photos. Have a drink instead.

The Mayan Mule is a variation on the Moscow Mule. Instead of the flavorless vodka, we use Reposado tequila, which has a nice balanced 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.

Mayan Mule

  • 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.

If you use the Highball app from Studio Neat (and I suggest that you do, iPhone users), you can import this card directly into the app for the fully editable recipe:
