Latin Mule

The classic Moscow Mule is a simple, refreshing cocktail that combines vodka, ginger beer and fresh lime juice and is traditionally served in an ice-cold copper mug. This variation eschews vodka for gin, letting the juniper-dominant spirit meld with spicy-sweet ginger beer and tart citrus.
