I am currently obsessed with the Moscow Mule.
It's my go-to drink right now and I know it had it's big moment in 2014, but I love the taste of ginger and when this cocktail is done right - it soars. When it's made with ginger ale or some sort of lime bar mix, it goes way down on the express train.
So in my quest for the best Moscow Mule ever, I've tweaked along the way and this has become my go-to recipe for mixing at home. The copper mugs are a stylish add for this classic cocktail.
- Fill glass with ice cubes
- Squeeze in half a lime (I enjoy a heavier lime flavour)
- Add 2 shots of vodka
- Top with cold ginger beer (I like Reed's Ginger Beer)
- Garnish with a lime wheel, a sprig of mint or candied ginger
This cocktail is so ridiculously easy to make at home and requires a minimum amount of ingredients on hand and isn't overly sugary. You'll wonder why you'll ever need to pay $15 for a Moscow Mule again.
