The National Mule.

We here at The Daily Meal don't hide our love for the classic summer cocktail, the Moscow Mule. But we're loving the twist on the old from Geoffrey Zakarian's restuarant, The National. The National Mule takes the ginger root of the drink and runs with it, adding in lime, Angostura orange bitters, and maraschino liqueur.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
