Cocktail Friday – Melbourne Mule

by | Cocktail Friday, Made


Polka Dot Bride

When it comes to The Local issue, there is no doubt, this month, Victoria is doing it a little tough. So we decided, it needed its own special cocktail to send a little sunshine its way. And what could be more Melbourne than a coffee laden cocktail? We found this recipe from the cold brew coffee liqueur wizards, Mr Black and taste-tested it ourselves for this week’s cocktail Friday. And the votes are in – it’s a winner!

You can see from the half-empty bottle of Mr Black, that this liqueur is a favourite in the polka household, but who knew the bitter taste of coffee goes so well in ginger beer? This is a must-try combination (and a fantastic choice for your wedding signature cocktail if you’re a coffee lover!). Want to amp up the coffee flavour? Add some fresh cold brew to the mix!



  1. In a copper cup, add lime juice and coffee liqueur
  2. Add ice and stir well
  3. Top with ginger beer
  4. Garnish with a lime wedge or slice
