This is a classic Moscow Mule recipe with a special touch - fresh ginger simple syrup!

Aim for a few teaspoons of the simple syrup in each cocktail. The recipe below will provide enough syrup for a batch.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz. vodka (I love Grey Goose)
  • 2 T. fresh lime juice
  • Ginger beer (enough to top off mug)
  • 2 t. ginger simple syrup (you'll make this here)
  • ½ c. water
  • ½ c. white sugar
  • 3” fresh ginger, peeled and cut into small pieces
  • Fresh mint sprigs, to garnish
  • Lime wedges, to garnish

Instructions

1

To make the ginger simple syrup, add water and sugar to a medium saucepan. Peel a 3” piece of fresh ginger and chop into small pieces and add to the pan.

2

Note: The smaller you cut each piece of ginger, the more surface area you will expose to the boiling sugar mixture. This will give your simple syrup a stronger ginger flavor.

3

Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

4

Fill copper mugs with ice cubes and add vodka and lime juice. Top with ginger beer and a drizzle of simple syrup. Stir to combine. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint and a wedge of lime and serve immediately.
