One of my favorite cocktails is the Moscow Mule. I love the spice of the ginger beer and how it combines with the lime for a delicious and refreshing drink. In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I’m sharing a fun twist on the Moscow Mule – the Mexican Mule.
Break out the tequila and guacamole because Cinco de Mayo is here! As much as I love a good margarita, this Cinco de Mayo I decided to spice up my celebration with something a splash more unique and sophisticated. Today I’m partnering with Bundaberg craft brewed beverages to liven up my Cinco de Mayo festivities with the Mexican Mule.
The Mexican Mule cocktail is easy to make. Simply combine your favorite ginger beer, like Bundaberg, with tequila, simple syrup (buy it or make your own) and lime juice and you have a cocktail that will warm you up from the inside out.
Traditionally, Moscow and Mexican Mule are served in copper mugs. Copper mugs not only make your drink look totally cool, but they also keep the drink super, super cold. Fill them with ice, top them with your favorite spirit and let them do their magic. Now, don’t get me wrong. You can totally enjoy a Moscow or Mexican Mule in a regular glass, but if you can get your hands on a few copper mugs, consider doing so. They are definitely worth the investment.

Bundaberg Brewed Drinks craft-brews their beverages for up to seven days in the town of Bundaberg, Australia using real ingredients brewed to traditional family recipes. They have been brewing their world-renowned beverages for three generations, perfecting its craftsman brewing process, while always trying to source its ingredients locally, including growing their own ginger. The secret to unlocking the full flavor of our drinks is to invert the bottle before opening; glass bottles are used to preserve the integrity of the beverage.
So tonight, in honor of Cinco de Mayo, why not whip up a batch Mexican Mules and get your Cinco de Mayo on?!
