Everywhere I travel, Moscow Mule is on every single cocktail menu that I see. My husband and I have been making them for quite some time, but I thought a Valentine Moscow Mule would be perfect to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I twisted the basic Moscow mule recipe and added fresh strawberries, and it came out so good! If you have ripe, super sweet strawberries, cut the sugar amount in half. For a non alcoholic version, omit the vodka and white cranberry-strawberry juice instead. Enjoy and happy Valentine’s Day!
Valentine Moscow Mule Cocktail
8 to 10 minutes
1/2 cup fresh strawberries, hulled
1/3 cup water
11/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1/2 lime, juiced
4 ounces vodka (I love Titos)
1 (6.8 ounce) bottle ginger beer
Fresh strawberries, sliced
1. In a blender combine strawberries, water and sugar until pureed.
2. In a cocktail shaker combine ice, strawberry puree, lime juice, vodka and shake well. Fill glasses with ice. Add strawberry mixture; top off with ginger beer. Serve immediately with sliced strawberries.
