The Moscow Mule is a refreshing vodka-based cocktail with spicy ginger beer and fresh lime juice. This recipe is quick, easy, classic, and can be customized by adding your favorite muddled fruit.
As much as I enjoy going out for cocktails with friends or having a little happy hour at home with Brad, I’m quite picky when it comes to cocktails. I don’t like drinks that are full of sugar and even craft cocktails made with simple ingredients tend to be too sweet for me.
The only exception for me, is the Moscow Mule. Made with spicy ginger beer and fresh, tart lemon juice, the drink is fizzy and tangy, with a hint of sweetness and spice. Served in an iconic copper mug, your beverage stays cold, so you don’t feel like you have to drink it fast before it gets too watered down.
- 4 ounces vodka
- 8 ounces ginger beer
- 1 ounce fresh lime juice (squeeze of half a large lime)
- Lime wedges (garnish)
- Copper Mug or Collins Glass (aka a glass tumbler)
- Add ice to copper mug or glass followed by the vodka and lime juice. Top with ginger beer and garnish with a fresh lime wheel. Enjou!
