The Best Moscow Mule Recipe features spicy ginger beer, fresh lime juice, vodka, and a ginger lime simple syrup! On a hot Summer day, this refreshing cocktail really hits the spot! For an extra pretty presentation, serve in a copper mug with a sprig of mint and a lime wedge or spiral!
In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, water, lime peel, and ginger. Bring to a rolling simmer over medium-high heat until the sugar is completely dissolved. Then reduce to medium-low and continue simmering, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.
Remove from heat, add in the sprig of mint and lime juice, and set aside to cool for at least 1 hour.
Once cool, strain through a fine-mesh stainer, and pour into an airtight container. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks!
How to Make a Moscow Mule:
