Summer is never complete without indulging in a refreshing Moscow Mule cocktail, and they’re easier to make at home than you might think. Upon a recent visit to one of my favourite stores in Toronto, Spruce on Parliament, I picked up a pair of exquisite handmade copper cups by Sertodo Copper that instantly inspired me to get home and begin creating my own twist on the classic Moscow Mule.
As you may have guessed from the title of this post, the ‘berry delicious’ Moscow Mule recipe includes fresh blueberries and blackberries to create a homemade berry simple syrup that’s added into the classic Moscow Mule recipe, with the added spin of a Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer base to the cocktail. The result is a summery and refreshing drink that’s quick to make and easy to enjoy. See below for the recipe!
Berry Delicious Moscow Mule Recipe:
What You Need:
(makes 1 serving)
1 cup of Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer
1 shot of vodka
juice of half a lime
1 tablespoon of berry syrup (1 cup mix of blueberries and blackberries combined with 1/4 cup of water and 1 tablespoon of sugar, boil for 5-10 minutes then cool)
fresh berries and lime wedge to garnish
What To Do:
Add ice to a copper cup and pour in Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer and the vodka. Squeeze the fresh lime juice into the cup and add the berry syrup, then stir. Garnish with a lime wedge and fresh berries then serve.
Of course if you’re not up for making cocktails at home it’s important to remember that you can always enjoy Crabbie’s over ice with a slice of citrus for a simple and delicious beverage this summer.
