Spicy Grapefruit Mule

Freshly-squeezed grapefruit juice and a dash of Sriracha add a flavor punch to the traditional mule. You can also try other hot sauces to switch the heat up. For a milder mule, just delete the heat.

Number of servings


  • 3 cups vodka
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha hot sauce (add more if you like it spicy)
  • 0.5 cup sugar
  • 3 cups freshly-squeezed Sunkist® grapefruit juice
  • 0.5 cup freshly-squeezed Sunkist lime juice
  • 4 cups ginger beer, chilled
  • 1 thin sliced baby bell peppers, candied ginger, Sunkist lime wheels for garnish
  1. Combine the vodka, hot sauce, and sugar in a large pitcher. Whisk well until the sugar is dissolved. Add the grapefruit and lime juices. Stir to combine. (At this point you can refrigerate the mule mix for service up to 3 days in advance).
  2. When ready to serve add the ginger beer. Serve over ice and garnish with sliced baby bell peppers, candied ginger, and lime wheels.
