Gin Mule Cocktail

Gin Mule - a simple cocktail to make at home brought to you by the makers of Slingsby Gin.


50ml Gin of choice. We recommend the Slingsby London Dry but use the Slingsby Rhubarb to add a fruity twist.
200ml good quality ginger beer (don’t get confused between ale and beer! Beer works best for this drink!)
1 lime cut into ¼
Optional mint to garnish

You will need…

A glass - ideally not a wine glass or goblet. Use a flat bottomed collins or rocks glass or even better a mule tin/mug!
Something to crush the limes with – ideally a muddler but a rolling pin will work well too. (If you can't find anything don’t worry you can just squeeze and drop the limes into the glass.)
A spoon
Optional shot glass/jigger/measure – but you can just do it by eye.


Using a muddler crush the limes into the bottom of your glass extracting as much juice as you can.

Add a double measure of Slingsby gin to the lime juice and pulp.

Fill the glass with ice and top with ginger beer.

Give it a little stir and then garnish with a mint sprig.
