Texas Mule Cocktail Recipe

By now we all know about the Moscow Mule…that ice cold cocktail served in a copper mug with the bite of ginger and a brisk taste of lime. But today I give you the Texas Mule.

Texas Mule Cocktail

If you Google ‘Texas Mule’ you’ll probably find a Moscow Mule made with Tito’s vodka (which is made in Austin, TX instead of the traditional vodka made in Russia – hence the drink’s name). This Texas Mule is not that Texas Mule.

This Texas Mule is a cocktail that’s made with Deep Eddy (made in Texas) Red Grapefruit vodka, ginger beer and lime. I typically serve this in a copper mug, but chose to put it in a glass for this post so you could see it’s light blush pink color.

A friend of ours introduced us to this drink and we’ve been hooked ever since. This is one of those cocktails you want to enjoy on a hot and sunny day. The thirst quenching grapefruit flavor pairs well with the bite from the ginger beer. You get an additional little citrus twist from a squeeze of lime juice.

I’m keeping this post short because I’m ready to jump into the weekend…it’s been a very long week around here.
