Jamaica Mule


I think I've just covered all of the Jamaica-themed cocktail out there. I'm returning to this old stand by that I've made in the past to try it with fresh ingredients (I've been squeezing the pineapple juice along with the citrus) and a lovely ginger beer. Fentiman's is a spicy botanical ginger beer that tastes not only fresh but barreled and oaky. 

The cocktail departs from the standard Mule by being so large that it requires a Collins glass, but not crushed ice. There's a lot of booze in it too--between the 151-proof rum and the full measures of light and dark rum, you may want to wait a bit before having another one. 

  • 1 1/2 oz. light Jamaican rum (Plantation 3-Stars used)
  • 1/2 oz. dark Jamaican rum (Pusser's navy rum used)
  • 1/2 oz. 151-proof rum (Cruzan 151 used)
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • ginger beer (Fentiman's used)
  • pineapple stick
  • piece of preserved ginger

Combine rums and juice in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a Chilled collins glass full of fresh ice. Top with ginger beer and stir gently. Garnish with pineapple stick and preserved ginger.
