A Moscow Mule is a cocktail made with vodka, ginger beer, and lime, served in a copper mug. It was popular during the vodka craze in the 1950s and it's name refers to the perception of vodka as a Russian product.
Here's Oprah's Moscow Mule Recipe:
1 ounce vodka
1 teaspoon sugar syrup
Fresh lime juice
1/2 cup ginger beer
1 sprig fresh mint
1 slice of lime
- In a copper mug, pour vodka over ice.
- Add sugar syrup and lime juice.
- Top with ginger beer and stir.
- Garnish with mint sprig and lime slice.
- Serves 1.
I tried it, I loved it... and now I have to find out where to buy ginger beer on the prairies.
