The Ultimate 4th of July Cocktail

For those of you who aren’t feeling an ice cold Bud Light.

Although it has a different country in the title, different variations of the “Mule” have become some of the most popular cocktails in the US recently. Here’s what you’ll need:

2.5 oz Blanco Tequila (preferably something top-shelf to avoid a hangover)

.75 oz Fresh Watermelon Juice

.25 oz Simple Syrup or Stevia Extract

Mix these three ingredients into a shaker with fresh ice cubes, shake for 10 seconds, strain into a Collins Glass over ice.

Top off with Ginger Beer. Get an alcoholic version for an extra punch.

Garnish with a Watermelon Slice.

You can also add jalapeño for an extra kick!

Drink responsibly!
