Arizona Mule

Arizona Mule cocktail with blanco tequila, prickly pear cactus syrup, lime juice, and ginger beer

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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
