Happy Friday friends!!
Have you caught on to the Moscow Mule craze yet? I looked recently and it was one of the most Googled recipes in 2015. Crazy, right?? I think it’s because they are delicious and there is something so fun about drinking out of those sweet copper mugs.
My first experience with Moscow Mules came at my friend, Cathy’s house. She is a Moscow Mule making expert. She has a bunch of recipes for them on her blog, but seriously, the first one you should try is the Pomegranate Moscow Mule. It is my faaaaaaaaavorite.
One of the things I love about my friendship with Cathy, besides you know, her being a really compassionate understanding empathetic person who totally gets my life and always has an ear for me and blah blah blah . . . . is the booze. Cathy and I love our booze. And we love coming up with new boozy concoctions. She will send me a text telling me about her latest mule and I then I will get in my car and drive over to try it. Just kidding. Sort of.
Anyway, she totally has me hooked on Moscow Mules, so it seemed only natural that I come up with my own recipe to share with you guys. I’ll be honest. The first go at this was really just me pouring and drinking. But then I got down to business and decided that you guys needed some actual measurements to go with. Seriously guys. You really need to stop being so high maintenance. ;)
These are super fast to make, and obviously you can adjust the recipe to have just one mule for yourself, or one for you and the Cathy in your life, or keep it as is and make a whole pitcher for when you have some friends over watching The Bachelor. (Side note: Isn’t it getting so good????)
