Purple Mule Cocktail/Mocktail for Hook’s Rub Thirsty Thursday

Purple Mule Cocktail/Mocktail for #HooksRubThirstyThirsday

You ever seen a purple mule? No? Well you have now! We made this simple and delicious purple-toned variation on the popular Moscow Mule with Empress Gin, Fever Tree ginger beer, smokey demerara simple syrup, lime juice & fresh-from-the-garden sweet mint leaves. This can be made as a mocktail as well by omitting the gin. Check out the recipe below and let us know what you think about the Purple Mule Cocktail!
