The Moscow Mule—a vodka, lime juice, and ginger beer cocktail fashioned in the early 1940s at Hollywood’s Cock’n Bull—is enjoying a revival. Here are some of Palm Beach County’s most refreshing interpretations of the classic libation.
The island’s venerated watering hole adds dry ice to its Smoking Berry Mule and the result is incredible: a bubbling drink finished with a frosty touch. We recommend relishing one with Cajun-spiced fish tacos during happy hour at the Ocean View Bar.
Atlantic Avenue’s bustling taco outpost puts a Latin twist on the mule with house-infused citrus blanco tequila, fresh lime juice, local Non-Prophet ginger beer (on draft behind the bar), and a candied ginger garnish. Swapping the traditional copper vessel for a tin can lends an unorthodox aesthetic.
If you thought Moscow Mules couldn’t be any more addictive, think again. Grato’s frozen rendition, blended with lemon- and orange-infused vodka, homemade limeade, fresh ginger puree, and ginger beer, makes for an insanely delicious sip.
Mules are so adored at this Palm Beach North restaurant that it serves not one but five varieties, including mint and honey dew, a smoky-spicy mezcal, and a seasonal selection. Top honors go to the Blueberry Cucumber Mule for its mellow fusion of sweet and savory.
