Mayan Mule Cocktail

The tequila variation of the Moscow Mule substituting tequila/mezcal for vodka. While the original has a more clean and refreshing ginger beer and lime taste, the tequila adds an excellent cactus taste to this one. If you use a smoky mezcal, you get an even stronger cactus to taste with some smoke flavor. Put a little Tajin or chilies spices on top, and you’re good to go.
