Laura’s Moscow Mule

~ My tips for a delicious Moscow Mule ~

One of my favorite cocktails is the good old Moscow Mule. Something about the super cold copper mug and ginger/lime flavor makes it on of the most refreshing drink on a super hot day. Although we are heading towards Fall on the calendar, we are still setting some record high temperatures in Colorado right now. Plus, all of my garden items are still going strong, so last weekend I mixed up my favorite rendition of this delicious drink for myself and my husband. Here’s how you do it.

My husband first discovered the Canada Dry Ginger Ale and Lemonade can and instantly thought it would be perfect for a Mule. We’ve tried several Ginger Beers which is the traditional mix used, but a lot of them are just too harsh and can be a little bitter. The Canada Dry has a perfect blend of the crisp ginger flavor with a sweeter lemonade taste. Simply mix that in with your vodka of choice – ours is Tito’s – and voila, you have a pretty good drink.

However, I like to kick it up a notch by first adding a squeeze of fresh lime juice and a lime wedge for garnish. To add a summery, herbaceous quality, I head out to our basil plant and tear off a few leaves to add to the mug. Lastly, I pick one of our home grown jalapeno peppers and cut off a few thin slices. Depending on how hot your pepper, this can add a real kick to the drink. Pro Tip: I like to stir all the components around in the copper mug and let it sit for a few minutes to allow all of the flavors to come out. Add some ice and you are ready to drink!

~ Takeaway ~ If you grow a garden of goodies, think about how you can incorporate them into some of your traditional cocktails to spice up your life! Moscow Mules are a great vehicle for fun added flavors and make for a delicious refreshing beverage on hot days – cheers!

I needed this! I am trying to de-clutter my home and it’s been so difficult for some reason! Now I know why–my mentality hasn’t been where it should be. I will be doing this with my husband this week in preparation for a garage sale! Thank you!
