National Tequila Day:

This is a fun drink to celebrate National Tequila Day on July 24. After all, Jose Cuervo created tequila in Tequila, Mexico in the State of Jalisco in 1795. The rest…is history

Raise this Mexican Mule (Otherwise known as the Tequila Mule or Mayan Mule) in salute to Jose. Also give our Tequila Sunrise Margarita with silver tequila recipe a try.

The Ingredients for The Mexican Mule:

The ingredients sitting on a counter for the Mexican Mule
Here is what you need to make this drink.

The Tequila:

For the Tequila Jose Cuervo is a good choice with the other ingredients in this cocktail recipe.

According to the Cuervo® website Jose tequila Gold is a golden-style joven tequila made from a blend of reposado tequila and younger tequilas.

Choose an Aged blue agave reposado tequila like Jose Cuervo. It develops a smother flavor which we prefer. Silver or blanco tequilas are rather harsh for this drink.

Other Ingredients in this Cocktail:

We also changed out the spicy ginger beer we use in our Moscow mule for ginger ale. It’s a nice way to show off your higher end agave tequilas.

  • fresh Lime juice
  • Ginger ale
  • Simple Syrup

It’s a delightful Happy Hour tequila mixed drink. Just right for winding down after work.

The Glass:

Mule Drinks are often served in copper mugs as you see in our Moscow Mule drink recipe article . Read that entire post for an exhaustive discussion of the whole copper mug controversy, the origins of the original Moscow Mule drink, and a great recipe.

We chose to use a clear Tall Collins Glass for our Mexican Mule. If you have copper mugs feel free to use them. We wanted to go for clear this time. You can see the pretty amber color of the gold tequila shine through this Mule and the bubbles. 🙂
