Paloma Mule

Paloma Mule

Recipe courtesy head bartender Brandon Lockman, Red Star Tavern, Portland, Oregon

A cross between two classic cocktails—the Tequila-spiked paloma and the Moscow Mule—the end result is remarkably refreshing.

  • 1½ ounces blanco Tequila
  • ½ ounce lime juice
  • ½ ounce grapefruit juice
  • ¾ ounce agave nectar
  • Ginger beer (2–3 oz)
  • Lime peel, for garnish

Combine the first four ingredients in a highball glass over ice and stir; top with ginger beer. Garnish.
