Moscow Mule

Drink comrade! This Moscow mule recipe comes with one helluva kick, and we recommend an unflavoured vodka to start it off.

It's not completely certain where the Moscow mule originated, although the term "mule" means that it has ginger beer or ginger ale in it. The Moscow part, of course, refers to the vodka, even though the drink was created in the United States, and probably at the Chatham Hotel in New York. Whether it was the result of a bartender trying to offload some excess ginger beer or a group of executives just getting drunk, there's one thing for certain: this Moscow mule recipe has long been a surefire winner.

Moscow Mule

ingredients

  • A good-sized mug (copper if you can find one)
  • 1 double shot of Stolichnaya vodka
  • 1 tablespoon of lime juice
  • Fever-Tree ginger beer to top up
  • Lime wedge
  • Ice

How to serve it

  • Put the ice in the bottom of the mug and pour over the vodka and lime juice.
  • Add a lime wedge and then the ginger beer.
  • Then mix

You can, of course, use a standard highball glass instead of a mug (such as a Collins glass) but a copper mug makes it more authentic. Steel will also work, particularly if you're camping.
