What is the Cabal Spiced Orange Mule?

This is a twist on the refreshing and zesty Moscow Mule recipe.

Invented in America but named in homage to the hero spirit vodka and the spirits association with Russia, the Moscow Mule is often served in a copper mug.

The story goes that John “Jack” Morgan, owner of the Hollywood Cock’n Bull Restaurant had made a ginger beer which customers weren’t fussed about. When he got talking to John Martin, who was having similar luck selling his Smirnoff vodka, they cooked up the idea of the cocktail.

For this update we wanted to create a spiced Moscow Mule variation. We replaced the vodka with Cabal No. 1513 rum, and added a dash of bitters to offset the sweetness from the ginger beer.

The rum blend works so well with the spicy mixer, with the lime juice providing a sharp hit of citrus. It’s complex, refreshing, and lively.

Cabal No. 1513 is the first expression from rum blenders Cabal. Assembled from five blended tropically aged rums, the mix is them finished in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks.

It has lovely fruity tones, which is cut by the sherry cask smoke.

To ensure that their rums remain exceptional, each blend is tested and approved by an independent collective called The Cabal.
