Introduction: Moscow Mule Recipe

About: Made in Canada, I grew up crafting, making, and baking. Out of this love for designing and creating, I pursued a degree in product design from Parsons School of Design in NYC. Since then I've done work for Mar…

The Moscow Mule is a crisp, light cocktail that is perfect for summer. I also tested it as a camping cocktail and the results are in: thumbs up. You don't need to drink it out of a copper mug to enjoy it, but it definitely adds to the awesomeness.

Here's how to make this simple(y) delicious drink.

Step 1: Supplies

You will need the following:

- good quality vodka
- ginger beer (ginger ale will also work, but will be be less spicy)
- fresh lime wedges
- ice

Optional:

- fresh ginger slices
- copper mug

Step 2: Spice It Up

I love ginger, so the more the merrier as far as I'm concerned. Adding a few fresh ginger slices adds a bit more kick and flavor = a win.

Place the ginger slices in the bottom of your serving glass and with the end of your knife or a wooden spoon, muddle them to release their flavor. (muddling = mashing or squishing)

Step 3: Lime-ness

Cut 1-2 wide wedges of lime per cocktail and set aside.

* I love lime so usually add both slices, but to get started I suggest adding one, then add the second to taste.

Step 4: Ice Ice Baby

Fill the serving glass half way up with ice.

Step 5: Mix a Lot

Add a 'one Mississippi' length pour of vodka, squeeze in the lime slice(s), and top the glass up with ginger beer.

Stir.

Step 6: Serve & Enjoy

This is a great glamping or backyard BBQ cocktail that adds some light and fresh class to summer.
