Sunshine Mule

Updated: Jan 9, 2022

Refreshing & Nutritious

By: Pam Smith, RDN

Enjoy the best of sunny citrus with a Sunshine Mule! It starts with the classic ingredients for a mule and then adds refreshment and nutrition along the way.

Sunshine Mule


  • .5 oz. or 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice

  • 2 oz. or 1/4 cup grapefruit juice (fresh squeezed or Natalie’s)

  • 1-2 puréed whole kumquats (optional)

  • 2 oz. or 1/4 cup ruby red grapefruit infused vodka (I recommend Deep Eddy’s)

  • Fresh mint, muddled or slapped for use inside drink plus mint sprigs for garnish

  • 3.5 oz. or 1/3 cup ginger beer (I recommend Q Mixers)

  • Ice

  • Fresh lime, orange, and/or kumquat slices


  1. Combine lime juice, grapefruit juice, optional puréed kumquats, and ruby red grapefruit infused vodka. Add mint and muddle. Fill glass 2/3 full with ice, and then add ginger beer to fill the rest of the glass.

  2. Garnish by floating slices of citrus on top. Pour a splash of ginger beer over the citrus to release aromatics. Add a sprig of mint.

Pam’s notes:

- Make your Sunshine Mule without vodka for a refreshing non-alcoholic beverage that even kids will love!

- For fun and an extra depth of flavor, rub the rim of your glass with a lime wedge and then dip it into P.S. Flavor!™ Citrus Spice before making your drink.
