What Is A Moscow Mule?
If you’ve never had a Moscow Mule, then you’re in for a treat. A combination of vodka, ginger beer, and lime, this is one of the most refreshing cocktails you’ll ever drink.
In fact, they’re one of my top 3 favorite cocktails (these Frozen Margaritas rank pretty high too!). I love the flavor combination of ginger and lime. It’s the perfect cocktail all year ’round. Plus, it looks gorgeous in a fancy copper cup (you can get your own copper mugs here). These are classically served in a copper mug because the mug takes on the cold temperature of the drink, keeping everything icy cold.
Tips For Frozen Moscow Mules
- Like most cocktails, quality is key. Good quality vodka makes these cocktails so much better.
- Ginger beer – once again, quality is everything. Personally, I love a spicier ginger beer that has a really strong flavor. I find it really takes this drink to the next level. Find a brand you love and stick to it!
- Fresh lime is best. Once again, flavor is enhanced by using fresh ingredients.
- Blending – I don’t have a high-powered blender (we recommend this one), but I do use a Nutra-Ninja (like this one) which did the trick. With the Nutri-Ninja style blender however, be careful when taking off the lid as the ginger beer pressurizes and can spit out. The blending time will differ depending on the type of blender you have, but usually takes 2 to 4 minutes.
- Serving – I love serving Moscow Mules in copper mugs as they keep cool really well. If you don’t have copper mugs, regular glasses will work just fine.
More Frozen Drinks
- 1 and 1/2 cups of ice
- 2 cups ginger beer
- 2 oz. vodka
- 1 oz. lime juice
- Put ice in blender then add ginger beer, vodka and lime juice.
- Pulse a bit and then blend until ice has broken down and drink has a slushie texture. Depending on your blender, this could take anywhere from 2 to 4 minutes.
