Cheers to the freakin weekend! If you follow me on Instagram then you know Moscow Mules are one of my favorite summer cocktails. Hands down a Moscow Mule is the easiest drink to make and perfect for any occasion.
The secret to making a moscow mule like a professional bartender is the copper mug. You can buy copper mugs at stores like Home Goods, TJ Maxx or Bed Bath & Beyond. I ordered mine from Amazon a few years back. Skip the hassle of searching in stores and check out these copper mug sets I found online.
I’m no mixologist but I definitely prefer copper mugs over red cups any day. I’m not 100% sure on how true this is but experts claim that copper mugs enhance the individual flavors of the ginger beer, vodka, and lime. Copper mugs also help keep your cocktail cold without it being watered down. The mug becomes chilly almost instantly. Plus I’m a sucker for a cute cocktail.
Here’s what you need:
- Your favorite Vodka
- Ginger Beer
- Lime Juice or Fresh Limes
- Fresh Mint Leaves (optional)
Mix about a 1/4 a cup of vodka with half of cup of ginger beer. Add 2-3 drops of lime juice and stir. Garnish with lime wedge. I like adding mint leaves for a refreshing taste. I told you this was an easy recipe. There’s no way to mess this one up.
