Moscow Mules are one of my favorite ،tails for entertaining. Refre،ng and citrusy with a kick of ، and sweetness, they are always a crowd favorite. Throug،ut the year I love to change up the traditional Moscow Mule recipe by adding in various seasonal ingredients including cranberries, pomegranates and, most recently, strawberries. If you like to experiment with your ،tails like I do, then you’ll love these Strawberry Moscow Mules!


Strawberry Moscow Mules ingredients
  • Strawberries: Naturally juicy, sweet, and bright!
  • Mint: Mint s،s add another level of sweet, earthiness to the ،tail. Fresh ingredients go a long way when it comes to herbs!
  • Lime: The acidity and bright citrus flavor of the lime juice contributes to the cl،ic mule flavors.
  • Vodka: Clean, smooth, and strong.
  • Ginger ،: A strong punch of ، flavor, if you don’t like ، so much, you can use ، ale for a milder taste.
  • Simple syrup: I like to infuse my simple syrup with jalapeño as the kick of heat balances out the fruity, sweetness of the ،tail. But you can skip the jalapeño if you don’t like ،y!
  • Club soda: Makes the mule fizzier!
