The Arizona Mule is the lovechild of the Prickly Pear Margarita and the Moscow Mule, starring the neon-magenta hue and gentle sweetness of cactus fruit syrup.
We don’t always take the time to fuss with our copper mugs for the mule cocktails we make, but given Arizona’s nickname of “The Copper State,” we’d feel remiss serving an Arizona Mule in anything else.
Shake all ingredients (except ginger beer) with ice. Strain into an ice-filled short glass or copper mug. Top with ginger beer, and garnish with a lime wheel or wedge and a local edible flower.
