Recipe: A Punchy Moscow Mule
Ever go to the bar and see a refreshing drink in a copper mug and wonder what it is? It’s most likely a variation of a mule, a tasty adult beverage made with ginger beer and lime.
If you want to make one at home, this is all you need to do:
1. Mules are traditionally served in copper mugs, so grab your mug and fill it with ice. Copper mugs offer a dual cool sensation—it keeps your drink chilled and it looks…well, cool.
2. Pour in 2 ounces of your choice of vodka, ½ an ounce of lime juice, and 4-6 ounces of ginger beer (depending on how strong you like your drinks).
3. Stir to combine all the ingredients.
4. Top it off with lime slices as a garnish. You can also add fresh mint sprigs to give it a little hint of mint flavor.
Alternatively, you can swap out the vodka for different liquors and make different styles of mules. Use bourbon to create a Kentucky Mule, tequila for a Mexican Mule, gin for a Gin Gin Mule, Irish whiskey for an Irish Mule, and rum for a Rum Mule!
