A ginger and orange tequila cocktail

The agave plant used in tequila is produced in the highlands of Mexico, therefore to pay tribute to the spirit and country, Gemma at the Bowery Hotel has created a spin on traditional cocktail Moscow Mule and renamed it as the Mexican Mule. Served in a similar copper mug to keep the concoction cooled, the difference is found in the ingredients, which is a substituted with tequila instead of vodka.

Mexican Shopping Tip

How hot is that chile pepper? Fresh peppers get hotter as they age; they will achieve a more reddish hue and sometimes develop streaks in the skin.

Mexican Cooking Tip

There are 60 varieties of chile peppers, many of which are used in Mexican cooking. Handle them with care. When handling the spicier kinds, gloves are recommended. Always wash your hands with soap and warm water before touching your eyes.
