Drink Recipe: The Loaded Mule

The Loaded Mule: vodka and pomegranate cocktail

Hey everyone! We’re back with a great drink recipe that you are going to love. Everyone by now has had or at least heard of some form of the Mule. I love that this drink caught on because it is suuuper refreshing and delicious! However, after having so many I felt the need to give it a fresh punch in the arm (it’s kinda what I do). So here we go! Let’s make the Loaded Mule!

~ Ingredients ~

1 oz Vodka

1/2 oz Lime Juice

1 Cap-full of Pear Vinegar

Dash of Rose Water

Pomegranate Seeds

3-4 Mint Leaves

Ginger Beer

Get started by adding everything but the ginger beer to your shaker and muddle to combine all the flavors. Now I know what you’re thinking…what in the world is pear vinegar doing in a drink? Well don’t fret, vinegar gives this drink a tasty punch and I’ve heard that drinking it has some health benefits (or at least that’s what I keep telling myself as I dive into my second round). Shake the muddled mixture with ice and strain into a chilled rocks glass filled with ice. Top it all off with the ginger beer and garnish with some mint.

Whoa! Just look at that! This beautiful drink is almost as good looking as it is tasty. The acid from the vinegar balances perfectly with the sugar in the ginger beer, and the refreshment factor is through the roof (yes, that’s a real thing…trust me, I’m a chemist). Mix yourself up a Loaded Mule and enjoy!
