Rum • Sweet
Island Mule

If a Moscow Mule donned an Aloha shirt and went on an island vacation, it would be this drink. Made with cucumber-infused vodka and grassy, funky rhum agricole, this spritzy cooler is delightfully vegetal with an almost savory edge. With orange liqueur and orgeat (an almond-milk syrup) for sweetness and depth, it has the heart of a Mai Tai and the soul of a Mule. For an extra fiery punch, use ultra-gingery Bermuda ginger beer Barritt’s as the topper.
