The delicious combination of spicy and smoky is found in my Spicy Mezcal Mule recipe. This cocktail packs a punch but also features a vibrant flavor of fresh mint, which pairs perfectly with the bubbly, spiciness of the drink. In my opinion, this spicy mezcal mule can be enjoyed during all seasons, any time of day, and in the company of those you love.
