Nubi Cocktails: A Holiday Mule

Since the holidays are here and in full swing, it's the perfect time to put a little holiday cheer in your favorite cocktails.  This photo recipe is a minor spin on the classic Moscow Mule.

Although the classic mule calls for Vodka, I try to stay as far away from it as I possibly can (it's not a long story, but one I won't bore you with today. So, considering aversion to Vodka, my mules are always based with Tequila. A Mexican Mule if you will. Here's what you'll need to put it all together.

Crushed ice

2 sprigs of fresh mint

1 tsp of sugar

2 oz of tequila

1 bottle of ginger beer

2-3 candy canes or peppermint candies

A few fresh cranberries for garnish

1. Muddle a few leaves of mint, a teaspoon of sugar and crushed ice in the bottom of a mule mug

2. Pour in 2 ounces of tequila

3. Fill the rest of the cup with ginger beer

4. Top with crushed peppermint, a sprig of mint and a few cranberries for garnish

5. Enjoy!

Happy Holidays, friends!
