Moscow Mule


The Best Moscow Mule Recipe features spicy ginger beer, fresh lime juice, vodka, and a ginger lime simple syrup! On a hot Summer day, this refreshing cocktail really hits the spot! For an extra pretty presentation, serve in a copper mug with a sprig of mint and a lime wedge or spiral!



2 oz. vodka

1 oz. fresh lime juice

1 oz. (12-oz.) can ginger beer

Fresh mint, for garnish

Lime wedges, for garnish


  1. Step 1Fill two copper mugs with ice. Pour 1 ounce vodka and 1/2 ounce lime juice over ice in each mug. Pour ginger beer into each cup until mostly full. Stir. 
  2. Step 2Garnish with mint and lime wedge to serve. 


Aside from tradition, the copper mugs offer a scientific benefit, too: The copper gives chilled drinks an extra-cool sensation.

Cocktails are best enjoyed right after making and do not work as a make-ahead drink because the soda will go flat.
