“This is a light and refreshing beer cocktail (reminiscent of a shandy) inspired by a classic Moscow Mule,” Jones explains. “The smokiness of the mezcal is balanced by the honey, while the cucumbers add a refreshing balance to the ginger.”


3 cucumber slices
1 ounce Del Maguey Mezcal Vida
1 ounce Corralejo Reposado Tequila
¾ ounce ginger syrup (such as The Ginger People Organic Ginger Syrup)
½ ounce honey syrup (stir together 2 parts honey to 1 part hot water)
¾ ounce lime juice
Miller High Life beer
Cucumber ribbon, for garnish


In a cocktail shaker, muddle the cucumber slices. Add mezcal, Tequila, ginger and honey syrups, lime juice and ice. Shake well, and strain into a pilsner glass over fresh ice. Top with beer. Garnish with cucumber ribbon.
