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.)

I am so looking forward to enjoying these in our backyard. We’ve been working on it for a while, which means more backyard parties. I love entertaining during the summertime – especially outdoors when it’s hot. Nothing beats having friends around, whipping up a huge salad, getting out the grill and making cocktails.

These frozen Moscow Mule Cocktails are soooo good for summer entertaining. The fresh bright flavor from the lime and ginger are a summer match made in heaven, and as a frozen cocktail, they’re even better. So refreshing on a hot day. With some simple tricks and tips, you’ll be whipping up your own Frozen Moscow Mules in no time.

FROZEN MOSCOW MULE TIPS

  • 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.
