Moscow mules are one of my favorite cocktails to mix up if i'm going to stray from wine. I don't like to get too complicated... if they are, i'm to tired to drink it after all that prep (ha, just kidding, ya right). But sometimes, I do like to change it up. So for this moscow mule, i'm sticking to my favorite recipe, but throwing in some muddled fruit. You can do this with any berry or herb to mix up your fave recipe too, doesn't have to be blackberries! You can even make a small bar for your holiday party so guests can pop in whatever they choose and have a different drink all night.
- place 5 blackberries at the bottom of a copper mug and muddle
- top with lime juice, vodka and ginger beer (should fill about half of the mug)
- add ice to fill mug and stir
- garnish with 3 blackberries
I think I'm going to try out the bar idea for Christmas with blackberries, raspberries, rosemary and maybe some ginger. These are always such a hit!
What would you mix in to change up your recipe?
