Learn how to make the Classic Moscow Mule with this 3 ingredient recipe! Refreshing, simple, and one of the trendiest cocktails around right now!
If you go to my homepage and type in cocktails, you’ll notice quite the collection. My hubby and I started playing around with concoctions about a year or so ago and have built quite the collection. One of the most common drinks we see out in restaurants is the Moscow Mule. I’m the kind of gal that prefers sweet drinks, more fruity tasting than liquor, and stick to what I know. My hubby is the experimenter. He’ll try anything at least once. Just the other weekend, he tried a peanut butter old fashioned. No thank you, right?? BUT, he actually said it was good and although not his new fav, something he would try again!
Well, a few months back, we found a great deal on copper mugs. We bought a few to add to the collection, but never got around to actually trying our hand at making one.
Last weekend, that all changed and boy am I glad I stepped out of my bubble to try something new. I was surprisingly a huge fan of it! I had been making dinner when he prepared these and although I was hesitant at first, one sip in, I was hooked!
Incredibly refreshing and just the right amount of ginger and lime flavoring.
The copper mug was a fun twist to sip is out of and after looking up the reasoning behind serving it in a copper mug online, I was even more impressed. From what I read, this drink dates back to around 1940 and its often served in a copper mug due to temperature. The copper quickly takes on the temperature of the cocktail and the rim becomes chilly almost instantly. Hence why this is a refreshing drink option!
We used the limes from our lime tree out back, which was even more fun knowing it was homegrown.
All in all, its safe to say we have officially added Classic Moscow Mules to our rotation! Hope you enjoy just as much, but of course, please drink responsibly!
