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.


  • 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



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.


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.


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


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.
