I’ve made Moscow Mules several times and they’re always a hit and very refreshing. I also like that they’re extremely easy to make (we love simple around here!) and a multi-seasonal cocktail. Moscow Mules are a great drink to sip on while relaxing by the lake during the summer months and the ginger vibe makes it nice around the holidays too. While making them this time around, I wanted to add something different to the mix. I made an effortless blueberry syrup (with just a tablespoon of sugar) to pour over the Moscow Mule… and a Blueberry Moscow Mule was born! I loved the blueberry flavor and color it added to the cocktail. I also love the added antioxidants from the fresh blueberries!
Blueberry Moscow Mule recipe
1 cup ginger beer

Pour the ginger beer, vodka and lime juice in a copper cup and stir. Add in the ice and then pour a little blueberry syrup on the top. Give it another stir and garnish with blueberries and a lime wedge.
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/4 cup water

Bring the ingredients to a boil for 5 minutes, then let it simmer for another 10 minutes until it thickens. Strain over a glass bowl and let it cool.
