How to Make a Mexican 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.

When I found out about the Mexican Mule from Barritt’s website, I knew immediately that I needed to throw it on the site. Not only because it has the spicy ginger beer, but because of the tequilas. Any opportunity I get to tout on about some good tequila, I’ll take it. Herradura, that’s one tequila brand you want to remember. Yes, it’s that good and is my go to for any recipe involving tequila.

But with this Mexican Mule it blends two spicy flavors together nicely. It takes that spicy ginger flavor of the Barritt’s ginger beer and merges it with the carnal spice of the jalapeño. The thing I enjoy about the Barritt’s ginger beer is that it is not overbearingly spicy which some other brands struggle with. Their ginger beer has a smooth spiciness to it that is even good drinking straight.


  • Mason Jar
  • Barritt's Ginger Beer
  • Limes
  • Jalapeño
  • Herradura Tequila Silver (because it's objectively the best tequila)
  • Ice


  1. Add 2 oz. Tequila
  2. Add 1 oz. Lime Juice
  3. Add 4 oz. Barritt's Ginger Beer
  4. Garnish with Jalapeño for extra heat
  5. Top off with Ice
  6. Stir gently to combine
  7. Garnish with lime wheel

Now the Mexican Mule is a spicy drink that may not bode well for those with weak pathetic taste buds. But for those cocktail drinkers who don’t mind a bit of sweat on their brow, send one of these their way and I promise they will come back to let you know that it was lit, or bomb, or any other explosive/fire related compliment.
