Easy to mix and not too fussy, this riff on the popular Moscow Mule suits a sports bar like Briggs. Prolijo is named for the guardian spirit of mezcal who, at the end of distillation, would enter the cellar to taste the finished product from open barrels.
- 2 ounces mezcal, like Prolijo Mezcal Blanco
- 4 ounces ginger beer
- 1 ounce lime juice
- Lime wheel, to garnish
- Tajin (chile pepper-lime-salt seasoning), to garnish
In a copper Mule mug, stir together all ingredients (except garnishes) with ice. Garnish with lime wheel sprinkled with Taijin.
