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!
- 3-4 fresh raspberries
- A few mint leaves
- Juice of ½ lime
- 2oz/60ml of vodka
- Ginger beer
- Muddle the raspberries, mint leaves and the juice from half a lime in the bottom of a copper mug.
- Top with vodka, ice and good quality ginger beer - my favourite is Reed’s Extra Ginger Brew.
- Garnish with a slice of lime and an extra mint leave. Cheers!
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…
