Here's a Neon-Pink, Tequila Moscow Mule. Bold and Tasty.

Don’t let the bright pink color fool you: this creation, from Stones Throw in Houston, Texas, is no novelty drink. El Guapo definitely has an eye-catching, conversation-starting quality, but that’s secondary to its craft-cocktail chops. With a base of blanco tequila, a dash of desert pear syrup (that’s where the neon hue comes from), a squirt of lime, and a spritzing of ginger beer, think of it as a tasty southwestern riff on a Moscow Mule.

Here’s how to make one for yourself:

Ingredients |

  • 2 oz tequila
  • .5 oz desert pear syrup
  • .75 oz lime juice
  • Ginger beer, to top
  • Lime wedge, for garnish

Method |

  • Add tequila, desert pear syrup, and lime juice to a shaker tin with ice.
  • Shake to combine and chill, then strain over fresh ice in a Rocks glass.
  • Top with ginger beer and garnish with a lime wedge.
