#DOTW: Jalisco Mule

Sometimes you just have to make a cocktail that fills up the beautiful cups you bought a few months ago. I’ve had these standing in my kitchen, staring at me daily, begging to be filled with something yummy. These gorgeous copper cups are traditionally used for mules, and I found the most delicious recipe involving tequila blanco, so of course I had to share it with you! The mint leaves are purely decorative, even though I wouldn’t think you’re 100 percent crazy if you decided to muddle a few and add them to the drink. But keeping it simple is what this cocktail is all about!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Don Julio tequila (or quality tequila of your choice)
  • 1 oz freshly. squeezed lime juice
  • Fentiman’s Ginger Beer
  • fresh mint leaves

Fill the copper cup with ice, then add tequila and lime juice. Top off with ginger beer. garnish with lime slice and fresh mint leaves.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
