Strong and spicy, the mule is most often made with vodka — but we suggest choosing your own adventure with this recipe. Simply mix Moscow Mule Proof Syrup with your favorite spirit and club soda for a fast, easy, refreshing cocktail.

Of course, "Moscow mule" is the name for specifically the vodka version of this cocktail. Change the spirit, and you've got a mule of a different color.

  • Vodka: Moscow mule
  • Bourbon: Kentucky mule
  • Tequila or Mezcal: Mexican mule, or El Burro
  • Gin: London mule, or gin mule
