What ingredients do I need for a Moscow Mule?
To make a classic Moscow Mule, you’ll need vodka, fresh lime juice and ginger beer. For this pineapple version, you’ll also need fresh or frozen pineapple and pineapple juice.
What type of drinking vessel is used for a Moscow mule?
A copper mug is the traditional drinking vessel for a Moscow mule. These copper mugs are a great addition to any home bar and are a must for enjoying a cold, frosty Moscow mule.
How do you make a Moscow Mule cocktail?
- Start by filling a copper mug with ice. Add in the fresh or frozen pineapple chunks.
- Next, pour in the fresh squeezed lime juice, pineapple juice and vodka.
- Lastly, top off the mug with ginger beer.
Can you substitute ginger ale for ginger beer in a Moscow mule?
Yes, you can substitute ginger ale for ginger beer, however, the flavor will be different. Using ginger ale will create a sweeter, more fizzy drink. I recommend using ginger beer if you enjoy more of the ginger and citrus flavors in your mule.
Is ginger beer high in sugar?
Yes, ginger beer is high in sugar. On average, a bottle of ginger beer contains approximately 38.5 grams of sugar, which is the equivalent of about 8 tsp. of sugar.
If you’re looking for some lower sugar ginger beer options, here are a few I recommend:
- Reed’s Zero Sugar Ginger Beer
- Fever Tree Refreshingly Light Ginger Beer
- Willie’s Superbrew Ginger Beer
What food goes with a Pineapple Moscow Mule?
A pineapple Moscow mule goes with just about anything, but here are a few recommendations that would really compliment the flavors of this Pineapple Moscow Mule:
- Pineapple Grilled Chicken
- Hawaiian Ham & Pineapple Kebabs
- Slow Cooker Honey Roasted Mixed Nuts
- Cheese Grape Pistachio Truffles
