Try this Strawberry Moscow Mule for a twist on the traditional Moscow Mule cocktail. Fresh strawberries, lime juice, vodka and ginger beer combine together in this delicious and refreshing icy cocktail.
Who doesn’t love a Moscow Mule? They are seriously the most refreshing cocktail – Perfect for warm summer evenings on the patio. And, I’ve got to be honest, the cute copper mugs that they’re served in pretty much just win my heart. But there’s a bonus too – Did you know that copper actually helps to keep your beverage cold? Meaning that that icy cold Moscow Mule stays just that much more refreshing as you sip on it. I mean, no one wants a warm cocktail in the summertime…
Today I’m putting a twist on the traditional Moscow Mule by throwing some strawberries into the mix. Strawberries and lime just seem to be a match made in heaven – Together, they’ve got that sweet and sour thing going on that seems to be one of nature’s perfect flavor combinations. A quick muddle together in that copper mug helps to get those flavors going and then I pile in the ice, pour in the vodka and top the whole thing off with ginger beer.
I threw in a couple sprigs of fresh thyme from my garden at the end. Just recently my thyme plant sprouted these pretty purple flowers and I thought that it was a perfect compliment to this yummy cocktail!
