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.
Strawberry Moscow Mule ingredients:
You only need four ingredients to make these Strawberry Moscow Mules:
- Ginger Beer
Just muddle the strawberries and lime juice together, add a shot of vodka and top your cocktail off with ginger beer. Cheers!
- Make it a mocktail. Simply leave out the vodka.
- Strawberry Basil Moscow Mule. When mudding the strawberries, add a spring of basil as well.
