This is and excellent drink for spring and is an even better drink for variations! Being a 'mule', generally you use vodka but feel free to use gin or even tequila. It's even delicious as a mocktail! Also, mules are usually made with ginger beer, but instead of that, we use homemade ginger syrup and sparkling water. And speaking of variations, if you don't have basil, fresh mint is an excellent substitute. *David Lebovitz's Ginger Syrup Recipe*
