A Moscow Mule is a cocktail made with vodka, spicy ginger beer and lime juice traditionally served in a signature copper mug. This Raspberry Moscow Mule is a fun twist on the traditional Moscow Mule and makes for a perfectly refreshing cocktail. The sweet raspberries pair beautifully with the spice of the ginger beer. And I have included a fun Mocktail version for the kiddos too.
Have you ever had a Moscow Mule? OMG seriously, it’s one of my fave cocktails. I am always looking for fun twists on the traditional Moscow Mule to serve up for all of life’s celebrations. And this Raspberry Moscow Mule with frozen raspberries just might be my new favorite!
There is something about the spice of the ginger beer and the zest of the lime that counter balance one another and do this delicious dance on your tastebuds! When you add the sweetness of the raspberries the dance becomes even more beautiful.
The conversation heart garnish adds a touch of whimsical fun and makes this raspberry moscow mule the perfect Valentine’s Day cocktail. However, omit the conversation heart garnish and it’s a cocktail you are certain to enjoy no matter the season or the occasion.
I had my first Moscow Mule at Blake Street Vault in Denver, Colorado. I wish I could tell you all about this amazing gem of a watering hole, but it closed down in 2018. Oh how sad this makes me, because I still remember that first taste of a Moscow Mule hitting my lips as I toured the underground tunnels of Prohibition (yeah, seriously this bar was so cool).
While the bar may not live on, the Moscow Mule does.
Do yourself a favor and recreate this Raspberry Moscow Mule for yourself…You won’t be sorry!
Raspberry Moscow Mule Recipe
1. Fill your Copper Mug with Crushed Ice
Moscow Mules are traditionally served in a copper mug. While these are entirely optional, I highly recommend serving your mules in them if you have them. If you don’t have a copper mug opt for a highball glass instead.
2. Add 2 ounces of your fave frozen cold Raspberry Vodka
You probably have a favorite vodka by now, just grab your fave vodka in raspberry flavor.
3. Add 1 Tablespoon or ½ ounce of freshly squeezed lime juice.
4. Fill to the top with your favorite Ginger Beer
If you don’t yet have a favorite ginger beer, I recommend Cock and Bull which is available in most major grocery stores. Diet Cock and Bull works great in this recipe.
5. Garnish with a fresh lime and a handful of frozen raspberries.
6. Garnish with a handful of conversation hearts for Valentine’s Day.
I absolutely love having a themed signature cocktail and mocktail with all of our little celebrations. It is important to have something fun for the kiddos as well. So I served up this simple concoction for my little sweet treat to sip on. I called it a Lil’ Raspberry Baby Mule.
