The Moscow Mule


I love a good cocktail.  I even enjoy making them!  We are always mixing something new at the Hollister house.  This summer we are especially loving the Moscow Mule.  They are really “on trend” at the moment.  You can read a little history on it here – it’s actually quite interesting.

Traditionally the MM is just vodka, ginger beer and lime.  I think adding mint & and a little simple syrup is what makes it.

Here are the ingredients:


In your cocktail shaker combine the following ingredients:

2 parts Vodka

1 part simple syrup

Juice of  1/2 a lime

5 large Mint Leaves (rip them up a bit)



Add a handful of ice and shake it like a polaroid picture.  I tend to bounce when I am shaking that cocktail shaker.  Try it… it totally helps.

Fill a glass full of ice and pour in the contents of the cocktail shaker.

Finish the Moscow Mule by topping it off with Ginger Beer – about 1/3 cup.  ALWAYS taste test before you serve!

Whenever I host large get togethers I find that serving cocktails is one of the more challenging things to keep up with as they require so much time.  Mixing up a signature cocktail ahead of time makes the party run so much smoother and  you aren’t playing bartender all night!  It makes it even easier to serve your signature drink in a drink dispenser.  Above is the Moscow Mules we served as the signature drink for Tim & Santi’s Welcome Party !
