Grapefruit Mezcal Mule

Grapefruit Mezcal Mule

Guys, someone ring the alarm, Thanksgiving is next week! I can’t believe how fast time has flown by!

To celebrate the upcoming holiday season, a few bloggers and I are having a virtual Holiday Pairing Party with DRY Sparkling’s new limited edition Ginger and Cranberry sodas! Visit Amber’s blog Loves Food, Loves to Eat on 11/17 for the full round-up of #HolidayPairingParty recipes.


I don’t know about you guys, but I’m taking it easy this Thanksgiving. For the past 5 years I’ve hosted my own Thanksgiving dinner, and it’s nice to finally be able to not stress over having to cook for a group.

I’ll be in bed all day with my dogs watching Maria la del Barrio and La Rosa de Guadalupe if you need me.

Grapefruit Mezcal Mule

I was in San Francisco around this time last year, where I had my very first Moscow Mule and instantly fell in love with the ginger+lime combo. So when I tasted DRY’s new Ginger flavor, I knew I had to make a mule. #TeamBasic

It’s bubbly, it’s spicy like ginger beer, and it pairs really well with fresh grapefruit juice and smoky Mezcal. If you’re in a pinch because your pie didn’t come through, or you completely forgot to make something, don’t sweat it. Get your self a bottle of Mezcal, a bottle of DRY, some limes and grapefruits and have a good time!

      Thanks Tracy! If you’ve never had Mezcal before you’re in for a treat, it’s Tequila’s lesser-known and tastier cousin!

  • I love the idea of using mezcal and grapefruit with the ginger! I am also a sucker for Moscow mules, so I cannot wait to try this out. It was fun to celebrate the #HolidayPairingParty with you! xoxo
