Thank you Espolòn® Tequila for partnering with Half Full on the Bartenders At Home cocktail video series.
What inspired you to create this cocktail? “I wanted to create a Mexican Mule variation that was super clean and refreshing, with an unexpected Asian twist.”
What music would you pair it with? “DJ Snake, Ozuna, Saweetie, Big Freedia, or anyone who can get you to drop it low in your living room!”
What food would you pair it with? “I may be biased, but I think this works extremely well with Asian cuisine from various countries that range from rich dishes like Korean bibimbap to lighter ones like sushi or pho. It’s so versatile!”
Name the person (dead or alive) you’d like to make this cocktail for. “Margaret Cho, hands down.”
