Blueberry Moscow Mule Recipe

This delicious Moscow mule is a summer version of the classic vodka cocktail that was first made famous in New York. 

If you are looking for a great summer cocktail then you can’t do much better than an ice cold Mule. 

I’m a big fan of blueberry cocktails like our Blueberry Whiskey Smash  and our Blueberry Mojito and the mule is another summer cocktail I am adding to the drinks menu. 

What is a Moscow Mule?

how to make a blueberry moscow mule

A Moscow Mule is a type of cocktail that is typically made with vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice.

It is believed to have originated in the 1940s and gets its name from the use of vodka (which is associated with Russia), and ginger beer (the kick is associated with a Mule).

You probably know that Moscow Mules are typically served in copper mugs. While this isn’t essential, the copper helps to keep these delicious cocktails freezing cold which makes them perfect for a hot summer day. 

How to Make a Blueberry Moscow Mule

It is really easy to make a Moscow mule and this version simply adds fresh blueberries to the basic recipe. You can use frozen blueberries if you don’t have fresh ones, just let them thaw first. 

What’s In A Blueberry Moscow Mule?

  •  Blueberries
  • Vodka
  • Fresh Lime Juice (You can also use ¼ lime cut in 2 pieces)
  • Ice
  • Ginger Beer
  • Ice to fill a shaker
  • Additional ice to fill serving glass

You can make your Moscow Mule ahead of time, but I would recommend adding the ginger beer afterwards as it will lose the bubbles if not. 

How To Make The Moscow Mule

Step 1:

In  a cocktail shaker or mason jar

Add Blueberries and Lime Juice.

Muddle for 20 seconds 

Add Vodka and half the ice into the shaker and give a good shake for 15 seconds

Top off with Ginger Beer

Add a Straw, Stir and Enjoy!

How To Garnish The BlueBerry Moscow Mule

While a lime wedge is the classic garnish for a Moscow Mule, it can be fun to get creative with your garnishes.

I like to add a few blueberries to mine. You could also add some candied ginger or blueberry candy.

Blueberry Moscow Mule FAQs

Can I use frozen blueberries?

Yes! If you can’t find fresh blueberries, frozen ones will work just fine.

Just make sure they are high quality and thawed before adding them to the cocktail shaker.

What if I don’t have blueberries?

If you don’t have blueberries then your Moscow mule won’t be a blueberry one but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a delicious mule. 

Here are some ideas:

Orange Moscow Mule

Apple Cider Moscow Mule

What if I don’t have simple syrup?

No problem! Simple Syrup is optional if you prefer a sweeter Moscow Mule.

I usually don’t add any to my cocktail.

You can make your own by boiling sugar and water in a ratio of one to one until the sugar has dissolved.

Let it cool completely before using it in the Blueberry Moscow Mule.

You can also swap it for maple syrup or agave syrup as well. (by the way, here is a great maple syrup cocktail)
