Easy Moscow Mule Recipe

Moscow Mule is a delicious cocktail traditionally served in a copper mug.  It is so easy to make and good for anytime. The lime juice and ginger beer makes it so refreshing on hot days.  The ginger also gives you a hint of warmth, perfect for cold days. It goes well with a lot of different foods.  (Try it with Asian food like stir fried noodles.  It’s a wonderful pair!)

  • 2 ½ oz. vodka
  • ½ lime
  • 3 ice cubes or 1 ice mold
  • 1 16 oz. bottle of ginger beer (not ginger ale) cold


  • Cut a small slice from the half piece of lime and set aside.
  • Squeeze the juice of remaining lime in a copper mug or small glass (like an old fashioned glass).
  • Add 3 ice cubes or 1 ice mold into the glass.
  • Pour 2 1/2 oz. of vodka into the glass.
  • Fill glass with cold ginger beer.
  • Top it with the slice of lime and mix. Enjoy!


I recommend Fever Tree ginger beer because it's the best tasting among others that I've tried.  It also has lower sugar than others.  You can adjust the amount of vodka based on how strong you prefer your drink.
