It’s cocktail week! Today, I’m sharing everything you need to know about Moscow mules. Moscow mules are delightfully fizzy drinks made with fiery ginger beer, vodka and fresh lime. They’re refreshing on hot summer days, sure, but they’re also holiday-appropriate thanks to the strong ginger flavor. Moscow mules strike a balance between spicy, sweet and strong, and I’d sip one any day of the year.
Moscow mules are super easy to make, requiring just three basic ingredients (ginger beer, vodka and lime). The ginger beer component makes the biggest difference between a so-so and fantastic Moscow mule.
So, I grabbed all the ginger beers I could find at the store and tried them at home with Mara.
