If you’re of legal drinking age then you’re no doubt familiar with the Moscow Mule: A simple mix of lime juice, vodka, and ginger beer, traditionally served in a copper mug. While I always appreciate a classic, I also love to put my own spin on things and added a bit of fresh grapefruit juice to the concoction as well. I can already tell you that this will be my go-to drink to relax with on those hot summer days! The grapefruit adds a nice tartness while the lime and ginger beer give it a refreshing and crisp finish. Add a few strips of fresh ginger in the bottom of the glass and muddle for an extra zesty ginger flavor!
For my boyfriend’s birthday I made him a fun little gift basket which contained all the ingredients he needed for his favorite cocktail, a Moscow Mule, along with the traditional copper mug (which keeps the cocktail icy cold!). He enjoys his slightly different though and prefers Tequila in lieu of vodka. I also had him try one with the habanero infused tequila I made for margaritas a few weeks ago and he vouched that it was refreshing and spicy, a great combination for summer!
