Raspberry Moscow Mules

A Moscow Mule is a cocktail made with vodka, a spicy ginger beer, and lime juice, garnished with a slice or wedge of lime and usually served in a copper mug. The cocktail originated in 1941 in Manhattan, but has recently become very popular again. While I love the traditional drink, I could not resist adding fresh mulled raspberries and a bit of mint to the mix. This Raspberry Moscow Mule is perfectly refreshing and great on a hot summer day with your girl friends!

My go to vodka is SVEDKA. This imported vodka is not only cheap, but it is chic. The fancy bottle and smooth flavor our favorite way to get the girl’s night started! The new Stars and Stripes bottle is perfect decoration for 4th of July! Who doesn’t love a bottle that is not only decoration, but is also liquid confidence and fun too!

Homemade Ginger Beer and Raspberry Moscow Mules

 

Ginger Beer Ingredients

You may be able to purchase ginger beer at the store, the homemade version is so much better! This spicy ginger beer is made the old-fashioned way, using freshly grated ginger, sugar, lemon juice, and yeast to produce natural carbonation. It is a heck of a lot cheaper to make yourself and easy too!

Homemade Ginger Beer

To make the ginger beer, you simmer the sugar, water, and freshly grated ginger in a small pan until the sugar has completely dissolved. Once done, remove it from the heat and allow the syrup to steep for an hour.

Making Homemade Ginger Beer

Using a funnel, pour syrup into a 2-litre plastic bottle. It is very important to use a plastic bottle because once you add the yeast, the liquid will begin to brew and release natural gases, which could result in the bottle exploding (however, if you follow my directions, that won’t happen). Add yeast, lemon juice, and water to the ginger syrup, screw on the cap, and shake until the yeast has dissolved.

Homemade Ginger Beer

Store the bottle in a dark corner of your kitchen for 2 days to ferment. It is VERY important to unscrew the bottle every day to allow some of the gases to escape. After 2 days, refrigerate the bottle to stop the fermentation. When you are ready to serve, strain the ginger beer and enjoy!
