One of the best Moscow Mules I’ve ever had was at the SoHo House in West Hollywood. The ginger and lime taste we’re both very prominent in the cocktail and none of the ingredients tasted watered down! It was absolutely delicious! They generously shared the recipe in their book and the secret is… there is no ginger beer in the cocktail!

It’s simply homemade ginger syrup, lime, vodka with a splash of club soda. Sometimes the ginger flavor in ginger beer can be subtle and watery, so this makes sense!

Also, another thing that’s different is the simple syrup ingredients.  Instead of equal parts water, sugar, and fresh chopped ginger, it’s equal parts ginger juice and caster sugar, which also adds to a more intense flavor of ginger!

We adapted it and added a little less simple syrup and pineapple juice to the recipe. It’s so delicious!!

Pineapple Flower Garnish

If you want to take your cocktail up a notch, make pineapple flowers! Pineapple flowers are dried pineapple slices that are shaped in a cupcake tin. They’re easy to make, just takes some time.

The history of the Moscow Mule

Despite its name, the Moscow Mule was first created in Manhatten in the 1940s. Made with vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice and garnished with a lime and mint leaves, it is a simple but wonderfully easy and refreshing cocktail. 

There are many variations on the original Moscow Mule recipe, including this Apple Cider Moscow Mule. One of the most famous is the Kentucky Mule, where the vodka is replaced with bourbon.

Why do Moscow mules have to be served in a copper mug?

Moscow Mules are traditionally served in copper mugs, like the ones you can see in the photos, and that’s not just to make them look pretty! 

The metal cup keeps the cocktail delightfully cold while you drink it, and it means the ice doesn’t melt as quickly which can result in the dilution of your drink.
