Happy hump day, y’all!
Anyone else love a classic Moscow mule? I discovered these at one of my favorite happy hour places, Lyon Hall, a few years ago and have never looked back.
Needless to say, I was so happy to discover these are so easy to make at home. The hardest part is probably finding ginger beer. It’s definitely becoming more mainstream now, but if you’re having a hard time sourcing it from your local grocery store, I’d recommend trying Trader Joes or World Market. I can always seem to find it at one of those two places!
So without further ado, here’s a classic Moscow mule recipe for your midweek treat!
Ingredients / Serves 2
- 3 ounces vodka (two standard shot glasses)
- 16 ounces ginger beer
- 4 tablespoons lime juice
- lime to garnish
- Chill vodka and ginger beer 4-6 hours prior to serving.
- Measure vodka and lime juice and pour into copper mugs.
- Top off with ginger beer, ice, and a fresh lime to garnish.
I pinned this to try later! I’ve always wanted to make these (if only for the super elegant drink ware!) I’m obsessed with copper.
Ah so glad you found it helpful. I hope you find it as tasty as it looks!
Um yum! I LOVE me some moscow mules, never thought to make them at home!
Yes! I hadn’t either until recently. So worth it!
Um, yum!! It’s only 10 AM and I want one of these right now!! I definitely need to try these! Beautiful photography too 🙂

My dad is obsessed with the copper mugs…will def. have to save this recipe for when they are up to visit!
Yes! Let me know how they go over :]
I’ve been loving moscow mules lately. I just purchased some copper mugs, so now I can’t wait to make some at home!
Yes! Treat yourself!
Okay I will ex out the vodka, but I will definitely make this and drink it on the weekend. Since it’s my birthday weekend coming up. Loving those mule cups girl.

Thanks so much Kia! I’m sure they’d taste great “virgin” too!
Not going to lie, I want to make these so I can buy the cups! They are just so cute. But back to the drinks! Lately, I’ve been experimenting with the Gin Gin Mule (The Moscow Mule’s relative) and I’ve been loving it so I can’t wait to try the true blue original.
Right? Aren’t the cups cute! Thanks for the tip on the Gin Gin mule. I will have to try it.
I love moscow mules and have a few mugs on my bar cart!
I’d love to make my own so I may try this weekend.
Yes! Let me know if you like them :]
I’ve never had one of these but I’ve been seeing them everywhere over the past couple years!
Yes! They have really popped up. A very non-polarizing flavor so definitely try!
