Tip

To make simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water in a small saucepan and cook until sugar is dissolved.

American Mule

Using Tito’s Texas-made vodka makes this an American version of the classic Moscow mule. Be sure to buy ginger beer, not ginger ale – it has a much stronger, spicier flavor.

Makes 1 cocktail

1 1/2 ounces Tito’s vodka

1 ounce lime juice

1/2 ounce simple syrup

4 ounces ginger beer

1 lime slice or 1 piece crystallized ginger, to garnish

1. Pour vodka & lime juice over ice in a rocks glass or snifter.

2. Add simple syrup as needed.

3. Top with the ginger beer and garnish with a slice of lime or skewered crystallized ginger.
