Fresh strawberries, lime juice, vodka and ginger beer combine together in this delicious and refreshing icy cocktail. | platingsandpairings.comWho 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!

    This is a great idea to throw in some strawberries into a mule! I am not a big cocktail drinker, except honestly Moscow Mules. They are so refreshing and I love the kick from the ginger. As I cannot wait for strawberry season, this would be a good drink for some future patio parties (assuming I don’t eat all the berries before putting them in the cups!).

    I don’t think I’ve ever actually had a Moscow Mule but this looks delicious! And you’re totally right, those mugs are so cute 🙂

      Megan – You definitely need to try one soon! I really got hooked last summer after I invested in the copper mugs and realized that it’s one of the easiest cocktails to make!

    I love Moscow mules and order them often (yes, partly because of the copper mug—you gotta love a cocktail with its own signature glass!). I’ve never tried one like this, though, and am looking forward to trying it out this summer!
