Burro | Cocktail Party


Burro highball cocktail with aged tequila, absinthe, lime juice, pineapple juice, simple syrup, and ginger beer

The Burro is a wickedly-delicious tequila mule, invented by Jim Meehan of PDT (although strangely, it doesn’t appear in his book). Tequila and pineapple juice are tasty partners for lime and ginger, but the real star of the show is the absinthe. Mules often have a tendency to be dominated by their ginger beer component, but the Burro’s smaller measure of ginger beer, paired with a little splash of absinthe, makes a little more space for the drink’s other flavors to come out and play.

It’s not part of the original spec, but we like to make this one with pineapple syrup in place of the simple, for a bit more of that tropical kick.



Shake everything (except the ginger beer) with ice. Strain into an ice-filled glass or copper mug and top with the ginger beer. Garnish with a slice of lime and a piece of candied ginger.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
