Guava Mezcal Mule Cocktail Recipe

There’s a liquor store in Baja California that might just have the best Mexican liquor selection I’ve ever seen. I’d tell you where it is but I’ve been sworn to secrecy. What I can tell you is I make sure to buy my 1L worth of alcohol and I bring back a new style of tequila, mezcal, or sotol each and every trip to make concoctions like this mezcal mule.
