What's the difference between a Mexican Mule and a Moscow Mule? The difference is the type of alcohol used. A Moscow mule uses vodka and a Mexican mule uses Tequila.
Prep Time: 5 Min

What Tequila is used for this recipe? I use a Tequila Reposado, or aged tequila for this recipe. It's gold in color.
Simple syrup is water and sugar heated and mixed together to dissolve the sugar. It's used in cocktails to avoid the grainy texture of sugar. Mine looks gold due to the Mexican sugar I used.
