Exciting, Flavorful, Refreshing, Eye Catching, Spirited, Local, Innovative, Fresh!
These words not only depict the experiences you will find at the 2021 New Mexico State Fair, they also clearly describe the official New Mexico State Fair Angry Mule, our new craft cocktail collaboration with Tumbleroot Brewery & Distillery of Santa Fe.
The Angry Mule is a twist on the popular Moscow Mule, but with a New Mexico twist. The head distiller at Tumbleroot drove to Hatch, NM to purchase red chile pods, then fashioned a simple syrup infused with Hatch red chile, fresh ginger, and spices for that extra flavorful kick. This ready-made cocktail connects our local agricultural heritage with the growing industry of craft distilling in New Mexico.
The New Mexico State Fair Angry Mule will be available at retailers and grocers in Albuquerque and Santa Fe starting Labor Day weekend, and at EXPO New Mexico throughout the run of the New Mexico State Fair.
