Easy Summer Drink Recipes
with Barritt's Ginger Beer
With longer days and increased debauchery, the summer is the perfect time to try out some new cocktails. Luckily, I had the opportunity to partner with Barritt’s Ginger Beer to highlight their delicious ginger beer. I’ve used ginger beer for a variety of cocktails, and what I enjoy the most about using it is that the popular recipes containing it are usually very simple. That is exactly the case for these two featured cocktail recipes, the Moscow Mule and the Mexican Mule. Unlike the more laborious Mojito with Dark Rum cocktail recipe, these require less ingredients and far less handiwork.
The interesting thing about these two drinks are that despite having the same Barritt’s Ginger Beer mixer, they have vastly different flavors. The Moscow Mule has this pleasant ginger undertone, while the Mexican Mule has this spicy flavor that really cranks things up a notch. So, before the summer ends, grab some Barritt’s Ginger Beer and mix some of your own quick cocktails for yourself and friends.

There is a fun origin story about the Moscow Mule that starts with three guys walk into a bar. One, an owner of a ginger beer brand distributor, the other president of Smirnoff vodka, and the third a copper mug saleswoman. The stars aligned in that bar and this encounter would lead to the creation of the Instagram-worthy cocktail we all know as the Moscow Mule.
Ironically enough, spicy cocktails are perfect for already hot weather. This is the second cocktail that I have had this summer that contains jalapeño. That’s no coincidence and it sparked a food post! So catch the wave and try out this recipe for the Mexican Mule.
