An easy and refreshing mocktail (or cocktail, depending on your preference) perfect for hot summer nights!
- 1 12-ounce bottle non-alcoholic ginger beer (I like Cock ‘n’ Bull, but it’s very spicy. If you want something milder, try regular ginger ale or look for small, sometimes local ginger ale brands–they’re very popular right now and can be super tasty)
- 3–4 limes
- Fresh mint sprigs
- Optional: 3 ounces (6 tablespoons) sparkling water, still water, limeade or lemonade, or vodka (if you want a traditional cocktail)
- In the bottom of a copper mug*, combine 1 tablespoon lime juice with 3-4 torn mint leaves and, if desired, 1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) water, apple juice, or vodka. Repeat with second mug. Fill each mug half full with crushed ice, then pour half of the bottle of ginger beer into each mug. Garnish with mint sprigs and a lime wedge and serve immediately.
- *You can make these in a regular cocktail glass or mason jars, but mules are traditionally served in copper mugs.
