Mint Moscow Mule

We are huge fans of Moscow Mules in our house, and we’ve been drinking them for many years… long before they became trendy.  They don’t require a lot of ingredients so they’re easy to make, and they’re perfect for summertime because they’re light and refreshing.   

I bought this Encyclopedia of Cocktails book (you can also find it here... it keeps selling out at Amazon) a few months ago, and it is absolutely stunning… by far, my favorite recipe book that we own.  There are more than 1,000 recipes in the book, and Brian and I are going to work our way through it, trying all of the cocktails that sound good. 

Naturally, the first recipes we sought out were all of the different variations on the Moscow Mule, and this Mint Mule really stood out because one, I love mint, and two, we just so happen to have an abundance of fresh mint in the back yard as I type this.

I typically serve Moscow Mules in our trusty rusty copper mugs that we’ve had for years, but for the sake of photographing, I served these in a cocktail glass so you can see the delicious fizz.  Are these pictures making you thirsty?  ;o)

Use It

Copper Mugs or cocktail glasses (we love these copper mugs and these glasses)

Muddler (we love this one)


Buy It

6 Mint Leaves

1 oz. Fresh Lime Juice (we also keep Cocktail Artist lime juice on hand in the event that we don’t have a lime)

2 oz. Vodka (we love Tito’s!)

6 oz. Ginger Beer (Fever Tree is the GOAT!)

Sprig of Fresh Mint to garnish


Make It

1.    Tear the mint leaves in half and place them in the bottom of a copper mug/cocktail glass.

2.    Add lime juice and muddle.

3.    Add vodka and ginger beer.

4.    Fill the rest of the mug/glass with ice and stir.

5.    Garnish with fresh mint.


This recipe makes one cocktail, and it’ll go down so smoothly you may just want another!

Cheers, y’all!


  1. I haven't had a moscow mule in years, but they are so refreshing!

  2. Definitely trying this! Thanks for the tip on the Fever Tree brand, too!

    1. You're so welcome! We've tried several different brands and nothing compares to Fever Tree!

  3. You have my mouth watering! This looks so refreshing! We have fresh mint in our garden, so I am going to pin this and enjoy it sometime very soon. I love how you suggest which brand for each ingredient to buy. I am not as knowledgable on what to buy when it comes to cocktails! Lol! I drink mostly wine, but I do love a cocktail every now and then. Does the cocktail book contain mostly simple cocktails (not too many ingredients or fuss)? I may check it out!
