Jamaica Mule

This is a deadly strong rum version of the Moscow Mule. The classic vodka version of the drink is downright mild by comparison. Rum: 151, dark, light and falernum make up 70 percent of the liquid in the glass. That's fine since ginger beer is pretty flavorful and rounds things out. But think of this cocktail as a Zombie version of the Moscow Mule.

I love that candied ginger is a recommended garnish. A pineapple spear is also suggested, but there's no pineapple in the drink and this is a Jamica Mule not a Hawaiian one.
  • 2 oz. light rum
  • 1 oz. dark rum
  • 1 oz. 151-proof rum
  • 1 oz. falernum (Velvet Falernum used)
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • ginger beer
  • candied ginger
  • pineapple spear
Combine rums, juice and falernum in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a highball glass full of fresh ice. Top with ginger beer and garnish with candied ginger and pineapple spear.
