Texas Mule Cocktail

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.

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.

There is snow here and very little sun but if I make this drink will the snow leave and
the sun shine?????????? It will be fun trying.

I’m not sure this drink will make the sun come out, but it’ll feel like Summer when you drink it.
