This Gin Mule is also called Gin-Gin Mule, London Mule and even the British Mule. It is a twist on the classic Moscow Mule. Vodka is replaced by Gin for a more flavorful variation. The taste is fresh, sweet and zesty.
Ingredients in a Gin Mule:
- Ginger Beer
- Mint Leaves
How to Make a Gin Mule:
Fill a copper mug with ice. Juice half a lime over the ice. Pour in two ounces of gin. Fill the rest of the glass to the brim with ginger beer. Garnish with lime and fresh mint.
Tips for Making
- Muddle the mint for added mint flavor.
- If you prefer a sweeter cocktail, add one ounce of simple syrup.
- Always use freshly squeezed lime juice if you have the option.
- Ginger ale can be substituted for ginger beer in a pinch, but the resulting cocktail will be sweeter and less zesty.
