Welcome to A Drink You Can Actually Make, Eater's first ever recipe series dedicated to simple cocktails from new bars across the country.

The Mexican Mule at Doc's Cantina.
Doc's Cantina

Doc’s Cantina is Louisville, Kentucky's newest south of the border concept focused on Tex-Mex cuisine, with a wide-reaching menu from queso and nachos to tortas and mole. Staying true to its Mexican-American roots, behind the bar one will find an array of flavored margaritas, slushies, and even a lychee paloma. But below, a simple play on the classic Moscow mule, which swaps vodka for tequila.
