I love pretty much any vodka-based drink, but have never given the Moscow Mule the appreciation it deserves. It’s traditionally served in a copper mug (how on trend!) and contains vodka, ginger beer and lime juice, garnished with a slice or wedge of lime.

Today I’ve invited Irene from magnoliahousecreative.com to share with us one of her favourite cocktails. Enjoy!

It’s starting to heat up in West Texas, which can only mean one thing – here at Magnoliahouse Creative (magnoliahousecreative.com) we’re breaking out our copper mugs to make refreshing Moscow Mules.
This seasonal version combines the traditional lime and ginger beer with two bright flavours of summer, raspberry and mint, and makes a marvellous cocktail year round.

Thanks Irene for such a delicious twist on this classic cocktail, which can be enjoyed anytime of the year. In fact, I could go for one now. I’m sure it’s got to be midday somewhere in the world…

What’s your favourite twist on a classic cocktail?

    Mules are my very fav cocktail when I am somewhere fancy (ie not often enough) but have never had a raspberry mule. How very chic.

      So very chic indeed! I am going to try and make more of an effort to mix cocktails at home (as they are so expensive when out!)

    YES PLEASE! I’m happy with the traditional mule, but this adds something special!
