Ride or Die Moscow Mule Recipe

Impress your friends, wow your clients, and make your mom proud with this flawless moscow mule recipe that can be carried throughout each season with the right accoutrement.


Vodka (top or bottom shelf, with the right ingredients the vodka isn’t the focus)

Ginger Beer (my go-to is Goslings)

Lime Juice (my go-to is Rose’s Sweetend Lime Juice)


copper mug (or coffee mug in a pinch)

basil for garnish

Optional garnishes & flavor ideas:

Berry Good: blueberries/strawberries/raspberries/blackberries & basil (any berry of your choice!)

Holly Jolly: pomegranate berries & dash of peppermint oil

Apple Bottoms: 2-3 apple slices, 1 oz. of apple cider & dash of cinnamon, bonus: add cinnamon sugar rim to set shit off

Get crazy – experiment with your spirit, don’t be stuck with vodka, try tequila, whiskey, gin, what’s your poison? Give it a whirl. If it was good let me know, down below!

Are you a mom-to-be? Treat yourself to a refreshing mocktail and keep all the ingredients but the liquor. (Ginger beer is alcohol free.) Sure it might not give you that buzz, but its amazing what the placebo effect will do for your brain.

How to make the mule:

Fill copper mug 3/4 of the way with ice. Add 1.5 oz shot of vodka (or spirit of choice if you’re deviating). Add dash or two of lime juice, throw in your extras, if any, top with about a half can of ginger beer, and enjoy!
