Seven Sons Mule Recipe

by Moscow Copper Co.

Created by: Ozborne Williams, Bartender, Broadway Bar, Los Angeles, CA. 


  • 2 ounces Hendrick’s gin
  • 1/2-3/4 ounces fresh lime juice
  • 2 slices fresh cucumber
  • Fever-Tree ginger beer, to top
  • Mint sprig, cucumber wheel, and lemon and lime wedge, for garnish 


  1. Muddle two slices of cucumber in a mixing glass.
  2. Add gin and lime and shake over a few ice cubes, for no more than three to five seconds.
  3. Strain contents of the mixing glass over a copper mug filled with ice, top off with Fever-Tree ginger beer, and add garnish. 


I love Hendrick’s martinis, and thought it would make a delicious mule-style cocktail. This take is a little different than the classic Moscow Mule with vodka, but it retains the essence of the traditional mule. Hendrick’s gin is such a delicate, fresh, and subtle spirit with its infusion of cucumber, which mixed with the fresh lime, muddled cucumber and ginger beer gives you the perfect balance of freshness with a little zest! The name Seven Sons Mule pays homage to William Grant (the founder of the company that now makes Hendrick’s gin) and his seven sons that helped him build the distillery back in 1886 in Scotland.

Ozborne Williams

Ozborne Williams began bartending in Seattle in 1993 with no experience, landing his first bartending gig on the basis of his personality alone. When he headed back east in 1995 to attend college, he got a gig at a local pub in Greenwich, Connecticut. It was a job that not only helped put him through college, but taught him about working in a fast paced bar, and allowed him to learn firsthand what being a “rock star bartender” was all about. After heading home to Seattle in 2003, Ozborne then moved to Los Angeles in 2004, and in the spring of 2005 he took a job at Downtown LA’s Broadway Bar, telling himself “This is the last place I’ll ever bartend.” Eleven years later, he’s still there. Ozborne considers himself an old school bartender, and loves everything that bartending entails. He feels that bartenders are the caretakers of the hospitality industry, in that they create delicious cocktails to help celebrate the victories and ease the hardships of life, and always provide memorable experiences for anyone who walks up to their bar.
