For One Strawberry Moscow Mule:
  • 2 ounces vodka adjust to taste
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 4 ounces ginger beer
  • 2 ounces strawberry simple syrup see recipe below
For Serving:
  • fresh mint leaves
  • lime wedges
Strawberry Simple Syrup:
Prepare the Simple Syrup
  1. Heat all ingredients for the strawberry simple syrup (except pure vanilla extract) in a saucepan over medium heat. Cover and bring to a full boil, stirring occasionally. When strawberries begin to soften, mash them with a fork. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook at least 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool to room temperature. Strain through a fine mesh strainer, discarding the strawberry pulp or save it for a smoothie or muffin recipe. Store simple syrup in an air-tight container in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Make the Moscow Mules:
  1. Fill a shaker with ice and add the ingredients for one Moscow Mule. Shake well and serve in a copper mug filled with ice with a lime wedge and a sprig of fresh mint.
