With only ½-ounce of liqueur, this low-proof highball is “less of a cocktail and more of a flavor experience,” says Apologue Liqueurs co-founder Robby Haynes. If you’re looking to up the alcohol content, Robby recommends the addition of tequila or gin.
Robby Haynes’s Low-Proof Saffron Mule Recipe:
1 lime, cut into 8 chunks
.5 oz Apologue Saffron Liqueur
Top Note Ginger Beer, to top
Garnish: lime wedge, optional
Muddle 3 of the lime chunks in the bottom of a Collins glass. Add Liqueur and fill with ice. Top with Ginger Beer, stir and enjoy.
