What is a Moscow Mule?

A Moscow Mule is a fun and refreshing cocktail. Usually they are made by mixing vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice. You might recognize them better after hearing that they are the cocktail you see everyone drinking from a copper mug, which they are typically served in.

It’s said that their name came about from the combination of vodka and ginger beer. Moscow came up because of the tendency to associate vodka with Russia. Mule was decided because the spicy ginger beer gives the drink a ‘kick’ to it. Although this may just be a myth, it’s a fun story about the origin of these delicious drinks!

Ingredient Substitutions

Strawberries: The fun part about this recipe is that the strawberries it calls for, could actually be replaced with just about any type of berry. Mint goes wonderfully with so many flavors! You could swap out your strawberries for raspberries, blueberries, blackberries… the list could go on! You could even combine more than one berry as well. It’s fun to get creative with this cocktail.

Mint: If you’re not a huge fan of mint, it could be swapped out for another herb such as basil. Strawberry and basil is a wonderful combination. You could also choose to leave the mint out of this altogether and just make a Strawberry Moscow Mule.

Vodka: While Moscow Mules are traditionally made with vodka as the alcohol, this can be changed very easily. If you prefer, you could swap it out for gin or rum. You could also leave the alcohol out and make it a virgin mule as well!

Tips for Making the Perfect Moscow Mule

Tip 1: Try muddling your fruit! Muddling, or mashing up your fresh fruit will help to release the fruit’s flavor into the drink more. 

Tip 2: Slap the mint! It may sound strange, but slapping your mint will help to warm up the mint and release the flavor within the leaves. To do so, hold the mint in one hand, laying flat against your palm. Then take your other hand and smack the mint, like you are clapping.

Tip 3: Making these drinks for a large group? If so, you can mix together your strawberries, mint, and vodka in a large pitcher. Be sure to multiply the number of ingredients by the number of people you will be serving. Then, pour the mix from the pitcher over ice into your copper mug, filling the mug halfway. Top the mug with ginger beer to the top and you are all set to serve a group of people!
