A traditional Moscow Mule is made with vodka, ginger beer and lime juice.
If you’re not familiar with ginger beer, it’s brewed with ginger root and is a spicier
more robust version of ginger ale. Ginger ‘beer’ is a bit of a misnomer as
modern day ginger beer doesn’t contain alcohol.
The copper Moscow Mule mug keeps your cocktail nice and frosty and is essential
when the heat and humidity are in the sweltering range!
Make sure your mug is lined with stainless steel which won’t react
with the acid in the lime or fruit juice.
There are endless ways to customize your own Moscow Mule recipe.
I used Sweet Tea Vodka and Peach Schnapps which I already had, but you can
mix your own version with peach nectar, peach or regular vodka and a splash of sweet tea.
If you’re a fan of sweet tea and peaches, I think you’ll find this summer cocktail very refreshing!
This is the type of cocktail that I don’t usually measure, mixing to taste.
Fill mug half full with crushed ice, to each mug add:
1 ½ oz. Sweet Tea Vodka
½ oz. Peach Schnapps
1 – 2 peach slices, diced and muddled / smashed the end of wood spoon to release the peach flavor
Add ginger beer to top off and a generous squeeze of lime, stirring to combine.
