Moscow Mules

Ginger beer, lime, and vodka served in traditional copper mugs

Moscow Mule Cocktails in Copper Mugs

It's Friday, which means you're probably needing a cocktail (if you haven't already started) for that party you're hosting this weekend, or for pre-gaming tonight, or to enjoy on the couch after a long week of work. Moscow mules are one of my go-to drink recipes because they are so easy to make but always manage to impress people. It's just a mixture of vodka, ginger beer (non-alcoholic, tastes like a stronger ginger ale), and freshly squeezed lime juice and is served over ice. I like to go heavy on the lime in all my drinks, but it's easy to adjust this recipe to whatever tastes best to you. It's a super refreshing cocktail that goes down easy and hides the booze well. If you're lucky enough to have warm weather this weekend, it also makes a fantastic day drink.

Note: Moscow mules are traditionally served in copper mugs. These were a wedding gift and guests are always complimenting them. In addition to looking cool, they keep the drinks ice cold.
