The esteemed Spirits Historian David Wondrich has postulated that the word “cocktail” is derived from the practice (in 1785) of putting “ginger up a horse’s fundament, to make him lively and carry his tail well.” The ginger-suppositoried horse would have “a raised or cocked-up tail that being a sign of a spirited horse”....
Well. That being said - Ride The Mule™ is a lively, delicious, spirited “cocktail” that will leave you refreshed, that will get your tail up, PUT a spring in your step and a sparkle in your eye.
