Besides the delicious taste of a Moscow Mule, I love this vodka cocktail the most because of its ease. It is fail-proof, you can’t mess it up! (It also takes 2 minutes to make, so when you want a cocktail right then and there, you got one!)
For this cocktail you will need:
- 2 oz vodka
- ½ oz Lime juice (always squeeze fresh!)
- Ginger beer
- Copper mug
If you have a copper mug at home, USE IT! It is not just for aesthetic purposes, but to keep your drink cold longer with every sip you take!
- Fill your copper mug with ice.
- Pour in 2 oz of vodka.
- Add 1/2 oz of lime juice.
- Top off the mug with ginger beer.
- Give the drink a quick stir.
- Garnish with a lime wedge, and enjoy!
The best part is, you do not need to be strict about this recipe. Do you enjoy more citrus? Add more lime juice! Do you like it sweeter? Pour some extra ginger beer. And if you want it boozier, well nobody is judging you!
While traditional Moscow Mules are made with vodka, my favorite way to switch it up is by swapping in bourbon and you’ve got a Kentucky Mule!
