With only four ingredients, this blood orange Mexican mule is incredibly flavorful and so refreshing. It’s the perfect drink for summer using fresh blood orange juice and your favorite tequila.
What is a Mexican mule?
A version of a traditional Moscow mule made with vodka, lime juice, and ginger beer, a Mexican mule is the exact same but with tequila in place of vodka.
What does blood orange taste like?
Blood oranges have a rich and deep raspberry color which closely mimics its flavor. They have a more mellow and sweet orange flavor with a subtle hint of raspberry.
How to make a blood orange Mexican mule
Only four ingredients are needed for this recipe:
- Tequila or Mezcal
- Fresh Lime Juice
- Fresh Blood Orange Juice
- Ginger Beer (regular or sugar free)
All ingredients are mixed in a copper mug and served over ice. For the best flavor, I highly recommend using fresh citrus!
This recipe also works with either tequila or mezcal, myself being impartial to the latter. Whichever you choose, I always suggest a clean version without any artificial added flavors.
Does a Mexican mule have to be served in a copper mug?
While a copper mug is traditional to any mule cocktail, it is not manditory. Feel free to use any cocktail glass you like!
Mexican mule garnish
Top your refreshing Mexican mule with a blood orange slice, mint sprigs, and a sprinkle of tajin.
To keep everything in place, I like to use cocktail picks for my garnish! The tajin also adds another delicious layer of flavor to this drink.
