Classic Moscow Mule with Fresh Ginger Simple Syrup

Although Moscow Mules are meant to be enjoyed ice cold, there is something inherently comforting about the warm, spicy notes of ginger found in this classic cocktail.

Traditionally, Moscow Mules are served in beautiful copper mugs that are both appealing and functional. Unfortunately, this popular metal may be unhealthy if ingested in significant amounts. As a result, most copper mugs sold today are lined with a non-reactive metal. However, if you have the more traditional, unlined versions, avoid serving hot or acidic liquids in them to avoid any issues.

Classic Moscow Mule with Fresh Ginger Simple Syrup Ingredients:

2 oz. premium vodka
2 T. fresh lime juice
Ginger beer (enough to top off mug)
2 t. ginger simple syrup*, or to taste
Fresh mint sprigs, to garnish
Lime wedges, to garnish

Ginger Simple Syrup
½ c. water
½ c. white sugar
3” fresh ginger, peeled and cut into small pieces

1. To make the ginger simple syrup, add water and sugar to a medium saucepan. Peel a 3” piece of fresh ginger and chop into small pieces and add to the pan.

Note: The smaller you cut each piece of ginger, the more surface area you will expose to the boiling sugar mixture. This will give your simple syrup a stronger ginger flavor.

2. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
