Missouri Mule with Mezcal

Did you know that the Missouri Mule was a cocktail before becoming the official state animal in 1995?

Created for President Harry Truman by Joe Gilmore – renowned Head Barman of the Savoy Hotel’s American Bar in London – this cocktail pays homage to Truman’s home state and the Democratic Party’s mascot (a mule is a hybrid offspring of a donkey and a horse).

This is the perfect cocktail to celebrate Erstwhile Mezcal’s Missouri launch.  Boozy, delicious, perfect for cooler weather…

And even better with mezcal (substituting for bourbon).

Make one at home and let us know how you like it. We’d LOVE to see your unique twist on this historic cocktail.
