A magical combination of pretty standard ingredients creates an electrifying and contemporary mule. Dale Degroff created this cocktail as a tribute to the great bartenders of Cuba. As Dale puts it in The Craft of the Cocktail "curacao, lime and rum are the holy trinity of the island rum drink" and this cocktail combines them in perfect harmony. Top up this drink with Ginger Beer with restraint. 2 shots is all that's required, any more will over dilute the other ingredients.
Serve in a Collins glass and garnish with a lime wheel.
