TRADITIONAL MOSCOW MULE
A traditional Moscow Mule starts with vodka, has some lime and ginger beer in there. It is a classic cocktail served in a copper mug that you will love over and over again.
But if you are a gin lover, then this Moscow Mule with gin will be over the top for you.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO MAKE A GOOD MOSCOW MULE WITH GIN?
Fresh mint leaves start off this cocktail. Unlike the traditional Moscow Mule, we start by muddling some mint.
Next we need some Simple Syrup. I love to use my own recipe, but you could always buy a bottle.
Add some lime juice into the muddling. You need the juice of about one lime. I love fresh, but you can use store bought too.
Finally, good quality gin and ginger beer. I use ginger beer with alcohol, but I’ve also used ginger ale in a pinch!
HOW DO YOU MAKE THIS MOSCOW MULE WITH GIN RECIPE?
- In a mixing glass muddle together the mint, lime juice, and simple syrup.
- Add that to copper mugs filled to the brim with ice.
- Pour in some of your favorite gin.
- Top with ginger beer and give it a very light stir.
