There is nothing quite like the refreshing taste of ginger beer. It’s similar to ginger ale, but has a slight more ginger taste. I love drinking it any time I can and I also love making adult beverages with it!
It feels refreshing on a summer day and just as equally fitting in the fall time. Today I am sharing the best beverage you’ll ever have, a Cucumber Mint Moscow Mule.
- 2 oz. Vodka
- 1 Lime
- 4 Mint Leaves
- 2-3 slices of Cucumber
- 4-6 oz. Ginger Beer
Cocktail Tools Needed
- In a shaker, muddle slices of Cucumber with juice from one Lime.
- Add Vodka, Mint leaves and a few handfuls of ice. Shake for about 20 seconds.
- Fill Copper Mug with ice. Strain and pour drink into mug.
- Top with Ginger Beer and garnish with Cucumber Slice, a lime wedge and a sprig of Mint.
Copper Mugs are traditionally used for Mule beverages, but they are not necessary.
Over the holiday, my mama gifted me four Copper Mugs for Christmas and I was so in love. My brother in law, B Rigg, became our mixologist and I was quite thrilled when he handed over this tasty drink in my new copper mug.
It’s everything I love in a light refreshing (alcoholic) beverage. I honestly decided to grow cucumbers and mint in the garden this next year, JUST so I can have all the ingredients at a moment’s notice.
