There’s no better way to celebrate the weekend than with a fun beverage, and this week I decided to try something new for a Friday cocktail. Thanks to the recent arrival of a case of Reed’s Ginger Brew, I was in the mood to get a little spicy, so a delicious and classic Moscow Mule was the perfect choice!
The Moscow Mule is a fairly simple drink with a fun flavour that perfectly blends the spice of ginger with the tanginess of lime. It’s often made with ginger ale but I far prefer it with ginger beer since the resulting flavour is so much stronger and more complex. Finding good ginger beer isn’t always easy though, so I was pretty happy to discover all-natural Reed’s Ginger Brew!
- 2 oz. vodka
- 8 oz. Reed's Original or Extra Ginger Brew
- 1 oz. lime juice
- lime wedge
Fill mug halfway with ice. Add lime juice and vodka.
Add Reed's Ginger Brew until mug is full.
Garnish with lime wedge and serve.
For a virgin Moscow Mule, eliminate vodka.
Because my kids wanted in on the fun, I decided to make my Moscow Mule cocktails virgin, something that was as simple as eliminating the vodka. Both boys loved the finish drinks, though my heat-loving oldest son was definitely the biggest fan!
Made with Reed’s Original Ginger Brew and served in the traditional copper mug, this beverage is a great way to welcome the weekend. And if you’re trying to cut calories from your diet, naturally sweetened Reed’s Extra Ginger Brew-Light is ideal for creating a flavourful drink that’s not full of sugar. Whip one up for yourself and see what you think!
