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.

  • 4-6 oz. Ginger Beer

Cocktail Tools Needed


  1. In a shaker, muddle slices of Cucumber with juice from one Lime.
  2. Add Vodka, Mint leaves and a few handfuls of ice. Shake for about 20 seconds.
  3. Fill Copper Mug with ice. Strain and pour drink into mug.
  4. 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.

  1. Wow Amy! I’ve never had a Moscow Mule, but I keep hearing about them everywhere – definitely going to have to try this – I’ve got a huge crop of cucumbers ripe, and my mint is taking over the garden – so I’m definitely prepared!!

    Thanks for contributing to The Sunday Brunch Magazine!

    All the best,

    This version sounds so delicious. Have you had a Dark and Stormy before? It is a Moscow Mule with rum instead of vodka! It’s so good 🙂

But who doesn’t want to try it when they have those cute mugs! Pinning. I would love if you linked this up to Totally Terrific Tuesdays. Thanks for sharing.
