Our good friend Scott introduced us to this refreshing cocktail
He even gave us a bottle of Ginger Beer to start off with
So, I did some research and came up with this recipe that now has us hooked on
Moscow Mules at Happy Hour!
You’ll need Ginger Beer (this is a non alcoholic soda – we like the Saranac brand the best), vodka, fresh lime and fresh mint sprigs
These are traditionally served in copper mugs
The first few times I made Moscow Mules, I just served them in mason jars
But, since we were trying to embrace the spirit of this cocktail,
I bought the copper mugs
They really do keep the cocktail super chilled!
Not to mention they look cool!
Simply Sundays! ~ Moscow Mule
Makes 2 cocktails
12 oz bottle of Ginger Beer
4 oz vodka
1/2 fresh lime, squeezed
fresh mint for serving
If using copper mugs, it’s best to have them chilling in the freezer
Fill your serving cup with ice
Each cocktail gets 6 oz Ginger Beer, 2 oz vodka and a healthy squeeze of fresh lime juice.
Give a light stir just to mix the ingredients – you don’t want to lose your bubbles!
Serve with fresh mint
