The Moscow Mule is one my favorite drinks in the winter. It’s vodka, ginger beer, lime and rosemary. Some recipes call for a simple syrup, but I find it to be too sweet for my taste.
I think when people hear the ‘Moscow’ in Moscow Mule, they consider it a winter drink. But I love this one all year long especially with fresh herbs from my garden.
My rosemary bush stays healthy against the house because it’s protected from the winter cold. I hope it continues to thrive in my winter garden because I need that rosemary sprig for this Moscow Mule recipe!
I double up on the lime wedges and I use a Diet Gosling Ginger Beer because it adds a little extra sweetness and cuts the calories. I enjoy the diet version more than regular, but that’s my preference. Add lots of ice and stir.
It’s saved my sanity many times when I need a cocktail at the end of the day.
I couldn’t have a few of these especially after a long, frayed knot kind of day. To make a gluten-free version, use Tito’s vodka. Tito’s is the best! It’s saved my sanity many times when I need a cocktail at the end of the day.

Fill ice to top, pour in the vodka and fill with cold ginger beer.
