The Dragon Mule is a twist on the Dutch Mule, and combines the flavors of fresh, bright dragon fruit, orange, rhubarb and ginger. All of these flavors blend beautifully together. Dragon fruit is a mildly sweet, yet exotic fruit. so the sharpness of the ginger and rhubarb add a nice contrast. To bring even more fire to the Dragon Mule, a mixture of cayenne pepper and candied ginger on the rim of the copper mug brings a pleasantly surprising spice to the cocktail, which lingers on your palate as you enjoy this refreshing drink.
