How do you make a Gingerbread Moscow Mule?
The Moscow Mule is often called the “king of cocktails” and it’s no wonder why.
The classic drink combines vodka with ginger beer and lime juice.
But what makes this gingerbread version so special?
With this cocktail you have a one-two punch of ginger. First with the gingerbread syrup and next with the ginger beer that is a staple of any Moscow Mule.
What’s In The Gingerbread Moscow Mule?
In addition to the regular Moscow Mule ingredients of vodka and ginger beer, this version adds in gingerbread syrup and an optional piece of candied ginger.
- Ginger Beer
- Gingerbread syrup
- Lime Juice
- 1 piece of candied ginger if desired
For my Moscow Mule, I used Torani Gingerbread syrup. This is a non-alcoholic syrup that you can use for coffee as well as in cocktails.
I bought mine on Amazon but it is available in many gourmet food stores and even grocery stores, especially around Christmastime.
Do you use alcoholic or non alcoholic ginger beer in a Moscow Mule?
A perfect drink for the holidays, this Moscow Moscow Mule is made with fresh (non-alcoholic) ginger beer and vodka.
You can also use ginger beer with alcohol if you like!
Why are Moscow Mules served in copper mugs?
The copper mug is more about tradition than about taste. But we love how it looks!
They do serve to keep your drink ice cold which means you can enjoy it for much longer.
Copper mugs also make for great conversation pieces and make your drinks presentation take center stage on any table setting (they’re the perfect fit for any party décor!).
If you don’t have any copper mugs, you can grab these bestselling ones on Amazon.
