Spruce Up Your Classic Moscow Mule For The Summer

Method:

All of these will need the basic Moscow mule mixed first. To make a classic Moscow mule you need to take a shot glass and pour two ounces of vodka into a metal Moscow mule cup full of ice and ginger beer. To top it off you will need to add the juice of half a lime and voila the classic is ready to go OR ready to be spruced up with some additional flavors.

Variation 1:

Take the Moscow mule base that you have pre-mixed. Then select a sprig of the rosemary and place that inside the cup, along with some crushed mint, and sliced cucumber. This will create a botanical Moscow mule that has herbal essences.

Variation 2:

This Moscow mule is a little bit different because it is basically a margarita type mule. Grab your blender and prepare to blend some delicious Moscow Mules. You will need two ounces of vodka, one can of ginger beer, half lime juice, and a couple of handfuls of ice depending on how watery you want your drink to be. Blend everything together, pour into a cup and this mule is ready for sipping. Add a fun straw to spruce up the overall look.

Variation 3:

This recipe will use the cherries. Do not mix a mule yet, you need to make the base which will give it a sweet berry taste. Select four of the cherries, take the pit out and then crush them at the bottom of a metal cup. Once this is done add the juice from half of a lime. Finally, add 2 ounces of vodka, ice, and ginger beer. Combine all of the ingredients delicately so that the flavor of the cherries mixes in. Put a slice of lime on the side of the cup and it is ready to be served.
