  • 2 oz vodka
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • 4 oz ginger beer (homemade or a good quality store-bought)
  • lime wedges for serving
  1. Fill a copper mug or tumbler with ice. Pour in vodka, lime juice, and cold ginger beer.

  2. Stir vigorously and garnish with a lime wedge. Serve.

Recipe Notes
  • Don’t have time to make your own ginger beer, no problem. Their are plenty of tasty versions available at your super market. Just be sure you buy ginger BEER, not ginger ALE (its milder, sweeter, more carbonated sister).
  • Don’t mix up a big batch of Moscow Mules unless you’re serving them promptly. These taste best with a little fizz!
  • The traditional barware for mules are copper mugs. They’re meant to keep your drink cold and are just plain fun to drink from!
