Recipe: A Moscow Mule
Posted on May 31 2022
Now we all know that a glass of champagne is the perfect way to finish off the week. But why not mix it up a little (literally) with a fresh cocktail! A Moscow Mule is an absolute favourite in my house, they strike that elusive balance between spicy, sweet and strong and I thought I'd share my favourite recipe with you too — it'll be a virtual 'cheers' at the end!
Moscow mules are super easy to make.
You’ll need just three basic ingredients:
- Ginger beer
- Fresh lime (fresh tastes best, I promise!)
Moscow mules are typically served in copper mugs, which make them seem extra-cold and refreshing. (Copper is an excellent conductor, meaning that cold or hot temperatures spread rapidly through the material.)
While the copper material of your mug doesn’t actually make the drink colder, it makes it seem colder (and I think more enjoyable!). If you don’t have copper mugs at home, you can get by with a regular cocktail glass.
- Fill a copper mug or similarly sized glass with ice. Pour in the vodka and lime juice (measure with your heart). Fill the glass with ginger beer and gently swirl it with a spoon once to mix.
- Garnish with a lime wedge, and enjoy!
Cheers to that!
