There’s no question, I love a good recipe. Ordinarily, you’ll find me posting about pecan pie or my family’s “farmer cookie” recipe but, I swear I love a good beverage recipe when I find one. Today I’m sharing a tasty and fun drink that I discovered through friends — the Moscow Mule.
It’s the perfect drink for holiday entertaining or during any season. Mules are typically made with ginger beer, but I’ll be honest, after a few sips the ginger flavor is a little too much for my taste buds. Then I accidentally discovered I could make them with ginger ale. It gives you a very similar taste without the bite of strong ginger. Here’s the recipe I use:2 0z. vodka 2 0z. lime juice 3-4 oz. Canada Dry Ginger ale (or any amount to suit your taste)
I made this batch using this fun shaker I received from Canada Dry.
I simply mixed the vodka and lime juice together in the shaker, then added the ginger ale. Then I poured the mixture over ice in to my Moscow Mule copper mug.
Here’s what makes this drink extra fun…kids can make their own non-alcoholic version! Here’s how my kids make it themselves:1 cup ginger ale 2 tsp. lime juice
They poured the ingredients in to the Canada Dry shaker and then gave it a light shake and a couple of swirls around and poured it in to their own mule mug.
My kids love making their own drinks!
