Hubby’s Moscow Mule Recipe

Posted by terrepruitt on August 30, 2017

Ever since we fell in love with Moscow Mules I have talked to a few friends and we were all under the same belief: Moscow Mules have a lot of ingredients and are complicated to make. But ever since we fell in love with Moscow Mules my husband did research so we could make them ourselves and they do not have a lot of ingredients and they are not complicated. They only have four ingredients and one of them is ice, so that could not even count! As with many things – maybe all recipes – you start with a basic and then figure out what works best for you. So with our 16 ounce mugs my husband as decided upon the following recipe.


Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFit


Moscow Mules

3 shots of COLD vodka
1 cup of cold ginger beer
1 ounce of lime juice


Fill the shaker with ice.  Measure and pour all of the ingredients in a shaker. Then shake. Serve the cocktail in a chilled copper mug!*



How you make it also depends on the ginger beer you buy. At first I bought Fevertree and loved it. When I bought Bundaberg, it was too spicy for me. But then, one time the store was out of Fevertree so I bought Bundaberg again and it was too sweet. I bought Fevertree again and it was not gingery enough. I really think that the ginger beer is not an exact science . . . . at least from the batches of beer I have bought because they are never consistent tasting. Regardless, my first choice is Fevertree. In my post about ginger beer not having alcohol Stoli’s ginger beer is pictured. I just tried that because they were out of Fevertree. I won’t be buying it again. I like the other choices better.

I was just having a conversation with a friend who thought they were complicated to make — I don’t know where we all got that idea — so I told her my hubby’s recipe. There you have it. Easy peasy. If you ever wanted to try making a Moscow Mule now you know how easy it is.

Very tasty and very refreshing in the heat.

  1. Hi Honey,

    It really is the perfect recipe and you are so right on the brand of ginger beer being such a game changer to the flavor. We did go through a couple of totally blah ones :).

    Although you do mention copper mug, I would emphatically push the use of one. A Moscow mule is a very cool refreshing drink and copper conducts the cold much better than glass.

    Also I put the ice in the shaker first. That way I don’t get possible alcohol splashing back from me dumping ice in.

    Love ya!
