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.
Mexican Bitter Mule
1 1/2 ounce reposado tequila, such as Azteca Azul
3/4 ounce lemon juice
3/4 ounce ginger beer
1/2 ounce Aperol
Combine all ingredients in mixing glass with ice. Stir and then strain into a glass with fresh ice.
