Coaster 2 Coaster: The Arizona Cocktail

Grand Canyon Mule

Hey Fashionistas, I'm Stacey, the blogger behind

Posh In Progress

– a lifestyle blog where I share what I've learned about fashion, food and family. 

When 5 O'Clock Fashionistas contacted me to create a signature cocktail for my current state of Arizona, a few ideas immediately came to mind – limes and tequila were a must. I've lived in Arizona on and off for 7 years now and one thing I've learned is that Arizonians love their tequila and lime. 

I just recently made

another tequila cocktail

on my blog, so I did a lot of brainstorming and google-searching to come up with this Grand Canyon Mule recipe (you can thank my husband for the cheesy pun!). 

It's a pretty easy recipe, and perfect for the


-lovers out there. Enjoy! 


1/2 oz agave nectar (or simple syrup)

2 oz Reposado Tequila

3/4 oz Fresh Lime Juice (2-3 limes)

3 oz Ginger Beer

2 Dashes of Bitters

Lime Wheels, for Garnish


To make, place 2-3 ice cubes in a Collins glass. Add fresh squeezed lime juice, tequila, ginger beer and bitters. Stir and garnish with a lime wheel.
