6 Best Moscow Mule Recipes To Share With Friends And Family

Moscow mule is a type of cocktail drink that friends and members of the family can enjoy. It was invented in the early 1940s by John A. Morgan of The Cock and Bull restaurant in Hollywood, Rudolph Kunett of Pierre Smirnoff, and John G. Martin, the owner of the G.F. Heublein Brothers, Incorporated. Its first production occurred in Chatham Hotel, New York as a result of the trio’s experimentation when they have mixed their primary products – ginger beer and vodka – with a lemon. Success has come to them since the initial taste test, and the beverage has been introduced to a lot of bars and clubs in the United States afterward.

Nevertheless, Moscow mule’s story does not merely end with a happily ever after. Meaning, not all consumers felt contented with the classic blend of the drink, considering they have come up with various additional ingredients to enhance its flavor.

Below are the six best Moscow mule recipes.

Mint Mule

The #1 concoction on the list has mint in it. Similar with any beverage or food that consists of this herb, it adds a refreshing flavor to the drink.

Ingredients:

70 mL of vodka
70 mL of ginger beer
30 mL of lime extract
20 mL of maple syrup
Mint ice cubes

Instructions:

Start by preparing the mint ice cubes. While boiling a cup of water, chop a handful of fresh mint leaves and combine with a ¼ cup of sugar. Once you have the hot water, drop the dry mixture into it and don’t stop mixing until all the sugar granules are gone. Allow this flavor to combine with the water before you strain it and pour onto the ice tray.

When the mint ice cubes are ready, get them from the fridge and add to the liquid blend. Once the ice melts, the distinct taste of the herb will also fuse into the drink.

20 mL of lime extract
10 mL of water
5 rounded cuts of cucumber
