This Jamaican Mule has so much flavour it literally dances on your tongue! Ditch the vodka for oaky spiced rum & bring home the taste of the Caribbean!

The default recipe makes one cocktail.


  • ice
  • 50ml spiced rum (see note 1,2)
  • 15ml / 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 175ml / 3/4 cup ginger beer (see note 3)
  • mint sprigs and lime slices, to garnish


  1. Half fill a glass or copper mug with ice
  2. Pour in the rum lime juice and ginger beer and stir together. 
  3. Add more ice until the glass/mug is full and garnish with lime slices and mint. 


  1. In England and Wales, a standard shot is 25ml, therefore this cocktail calls for a double measure. In Scotland and Northern Ireland, a standard shot is 35ml. In the US a standard pour is 1.5 fl oz which is equivalent to 45ml. We could go on. Adjust as you prefer.
  2. You can use regular rum, but for best results use Jamaican rum (if not using spiced rum) as it is distilled in a unique way and has a strong aroma and flavour. 
  3. Make sure to use ginger beer rather than ginger ale, as it is stronger and more firey and has a significant effect on the flavour of the cocktail.
