Yes, yes, everyone has heard of a Moscow mule, BUT have you heard of a tequila mule!? Probably not, and let me tell you, you’re missing out. You know I’m a tequila fan. Palomas for one. I’m also a big margarita fan, like my watermelon margs… and regular margs. I needed a way to bring tequila into the fall spirit. So, here we have a smoked tequila mule.

This cocktail is perfectly spicy with the ginger from the ginger beer, bubbly, and refreshing. Then you add depth to it with the smoke. It’s *insert chefs kiss*, perfect for fall.

This would be delicious without being smoked. But you do need a smoker to make it smoked for this recipe.
