Strawberry Moscow Mule – strawberries giving a classic Moscow Mule a sweet and fun twist! Whip these up today, they are perfect to sip on any day of the week!
A moscow mule is a classic cocktail that has been around for years. It was popular back in the 1960’s I think, and has recently come around again. It is served in copper mugs, so it seems extra special! But a Moscow mule recipe is so easy to make!
I made Tuaca Mules a couple years ago that use tuaca instead of vodka, which is a sweet and delicious twist. This fall I had a spicy Thai inspired Moscow mule that was fabulous. So many options!
How to Make a Moscow Mule
- Copper mug is traditional, but not required. Any glass will do
- Ice – you need lots of ice. Moscow mules are meant to be cold!
- Vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice are added and then you just mix!
Mules have a reputation of being something hard to make, but they really aren’t. Just 3 ingredients! Unless you want to get fancy like a Holiday Moscow Mule that has cranberry juice added to it. Or like this Jalapeno Mule, which sounds delicious.
Moscow Mule ingredients are simple, so you want to make sure you use quality. Fresh lime juice is key, the bottled stuff isn’t nearly as good. Use a vodka you like – Tito’s or Absolute are 2 that I like. And find a ginger beer you like. There are a ton of brands out there, so just try them and see!
This Moscow mule recipe adds strawberries. I just muddle the strawberries to create kind of a puree. You could definitely puree them and run them through a strainer if you want it super fine. But I want drinks to be quick and easy, so just muddle with a few mint leaves to infuse all the flavor.
The fresher your strawberries the sweeter this cocktail will be. If you like things sweet, you can always add a little simple syrup to the mix as well. But taste it first and adjust if necessary!
