The tequila mule is simply a Moscow mule made with tequila in place of vodka. In my opinion, it’s way better thanks to tequila’s abundance of character.


  • 4 ounces ginger beer (alcoholic or non-alcoholic)
  • 2 ounces tequila (vodka for classic variation)
  • 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
  • Mint leaves, lime wedge, or candied ginger garnish


  1. Pour lime juice and tequila into a copper mug and fill with ice. Top with ginger beer and stir. Garnish with a lime wedge and mint leaves if desired.


Ginger beer comes in two forms. One is a non-alcoholic soda stocked at most grocery stores, and the other is actually a hard soda with alcohol. Crabbie’s is a popular spiked option if you want a more potent cocktail. You can use either one however non-alcoholic ginger beer is easier to find.
