We love a classic mule, but started wondering if we could put a modern twist on an old faithful. In our New School Gin Mule, we took out the ginger beer and substituted it with a kick of natural ginger, tonic flavor and spice. To fill the small void left by removing the carbonation, we swapped out the vodka for a juniper-forward London Dry Gin. It's a more crisp, clean ginger cocktail without the syrups and bubble trouble. You'll find this drink alongside us all year round working its way from our beach towel to holiday gatherings.
