2014 has been the year of the Moscow Mule for me in terms of drinks. It’s pretty much been my go-to at every bar and restaurant that can accommodate my drink request. I discovered Moscow mules early in the year when a few friends introduced me to them and I haven’t stopped ordering them since. I order them (or attempt to) so often that a friend got me a really nice copper Moscow mule mug for my birthday.
Moscow mules are fun to order at the bars, but they are actually one of the easiest (in my opinion) cocktails to make at home. You don’t need any special cocktail tools whatsoever…although a pretty copper Moscow mule mug will keep your drink cold.
I did a twist on the classic Moscow mule recipe by swapping in alcoholic ginger kombucha for ginger beer. And the results? Well, a really good Moscow mule of course!
So, go pick up a bottle of alcoholic ginger kombucha and any other ingredients you might need and kick off your weekend with a Kombucha Moscow Mule!
- 2 oz. Vodka
- 1 oz. Lime juice
- 5 oz. Gingerade Kombucha (alcoholic)
- Sprig of mint (for garnish)
- Lime wedges (for garnish)
- Fill a mug with some ice and add the vodka, lime juice, and kombucha.
- Add the lime wedges and sprig of mint for garnish.
- Serve immediately.
