Hello my loves!! Welcome back 🙂 Today I’m mixing up some Moscow Mules for you guys. I feel like this year, the Moscow Mule was the unofficial drink of the summer, and since summer is about to be over what better way to say goodbye than with a recipe for this elegant and easy cocktail. As a bartender, I realized that so many people had just learned about this drink and were wanting to try it out (mainly because of the adorable copper mug it comes in). There are so many delicious variations of the mule but I figured that I would keep it simple this time around! So, let’s just get right into the ingredients shall we?
Agave syrup (optional)
I purchased these cute little copper mugs at TJ Maxx but I know you can get them pretty much anywhere at this point. I’ve seen them at Target, Homegoods and on Amazon too.
Now that you have all of the ingredients, building your cocktail is the easiest part. Just fill your pretty little copper mug up all the way up with ice (I prefer crushed ice for this beverage.) Then add right on top of the ice..
2oz of your favorite vodka
.5oz of lime juice
As much or as little agave syrup as you’d like (I don’t like any, my husband likes about 3/4 oz in his)
Fill to the top with ginger beer (whichever brand you prefer, they have a ton of options at the liquor store and they all taste so different, the one I chose is more spicy and less sweet which is why my husband likes the agave syrup added to his!)
Stir and enjoy!
How crazy easy was that? It’s such a simple yet elegant drink that’s so fun to drink and plus it’s adorable. Makes for a great insta post, am I right? 😉 Some like to garnish this cocktail with a mint/basil leaf, I just kept it simple with a lime wheel.
