SB&Y’s Staff Pick

You’ve heard of a Moscow Mule… but what about a Sailors Mule?

Sailors Mule
No! Not that kind.

This cocktail has an added kick with a spicy ginger and simple syrup in the mix. If you can’t find ginger simple syrup, just chop fresh ginger into thin rounds and boil with 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar for 30 minutes, strain and cool.


1 oz. lime juice
3.5 oz. ginger beer
1 oz. ginger simple syrup
1.5 oz. Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum (or substitute your rum of choice)

Okay, that’s more like it! A true Sailors Mule. Yum!

Add rum, lime juice, and ginger simple syrup to an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake to combine. Pour into a glass with a few cubes of ice and top with ginger beer. Add lime wedge and mint for garnish, if desired. Enjoy!
