Lemon and Sage Moscow Mules


Bringing you all another unique twist on the classic Moscow Mule with these refreshing Lemon and Sage Moscow Mules! These yummy libations are perfect for the summer when lemons are in abundance! Instead of lime juice, we used lemon juice, then a dash of limoncello, fresh muddled sage and delicious ginger juice simple syrup! Speaking of ginger syrup, I have two types that I really love. One is an organic ginger juice and allows you to make your own simple syrup. The other is Liber & Co. Fiery Ginger Syrup that is already made for you and is super gingery and spicy! Both ways make for great authentic Moscow mule recipes.

Garnish your mules with a thick lemon twist!

Instead of copper mugs, we used copper tumblers! They’re modern and different and look beautiful on a table setting!
