What Is a Mezcal Mule?

The Mezcal Mule is a tantalizing twist on the classic Moscow Mule. Originally, the Moscow Mule is a mid-20th-century cocktail made from vodka, spicy ginger beer, and lime juice, garnished with a lime slice and served in a copper mug. The Mezcal Mule swaps vodka for mezcal, introducing a smoky depth that complements the ginger's zestiness.
