Gin Spin on a Traditional Moscow Mule

A traditional Moscow Mule starts with vodka, has some lime and ginger beer in there. It is a classic cocktail served in a copper mug that you will love over and over again.

But if you are a gin lover, then this Moscow Mule with gin will be over the top for you. This Gin Gin Mule will capture your heart.

What do you Need to Make a Good Moscow Mule with Gin?

Fresh mint leaves start off this cocktail. Unlike the traditional Moscow Mule, we start by muddling some mint, much like you do in a Mojito.

Next we need some Simple Syrup.  I love to use my own recipe, but you could always buy a bottle.

Add some lime juice into the muddling. You need the juice of about one lime. I love fresh, but you can use store bought too.

Finally, good quality gin and ginger beer. I use ginger beer with alcohol, but I’ve also used ginger ale in a pinch!

How do you Make this Moscow Mule with Gin Recipe

  1. In a mixing glass muddle together the mint, lime juice, and simple syrup. (If you are only making one cocktail, you can muddle right in your copper mug.)
  2. Add that to copper mugs filled to the brim with ice.
  3. Pour in your favorite gin.
  4. Top with ginger beer and give it a very light stir.
