Also known as the London Mule, the Gin Gin Mule is a nice little twist on the Moscow Mule that, well, uses gin instead of vodka. Gin and ginger beer have a long history as favorites in the UK, so it was only natural that they'd eventually end up together in this delicious variation.
|2 oz gin (preferably a London Dry like Beefeater or Tanqueray)|
|0.5 oz fresh lime juice|
|5 fresh mint leaves|
|5 oz ginger beer|
Preparation: How to make a Gin Gin Mule
- Combine the juice and mint in a copper mug or Collins glass.
- Muddle the mint, then fill the glass with ice and add the gin.
- Stir until chilled.
- Top with ginger beer, and garnish with a sprig of mint and a piece of lime.
