This herbal recipe brings together all of the classic “mule” flavors, including spicy Ginger beer and tangy Lime juice, along with a burst of bubbles from sparkling water. The addition of our Milk Thistle liquid herbal extract means it’ll help you promote healthy liver function, too. Bonus points if you serve it in a classic copper mug with a little Lime wedge garnish!*
