Learn how to make the best Moscow mule you'll ever have! This is a simple recipe that is the perfect refreshing drink for the summer!


  • Ice
  • 4 Mint Leaves
  • 2 Ounce Vodka
  • Juice of 1/2 Lime 
  • 6 Ounces Ginger Beer
  • Lime Sparkling Water
  • Mint Sprig, and Lime Wedges for Garnish


  1. Fill your copper mug with 3 fresh mint leaves ice 3/4 of the way up. Muddle some mint leaves in the bottom of the mug so that the aroma and oils can start to release.
  2. Pour in 2 Ounces of Tito's Vodka.
  3. Pour in 6 ounces of Ginger Beer.
  4. Top off the rest of the glass with sparkling water. I usually use lime-flavored sparkling water, but regular is just fine too.
  5. Finish off with a fresh mint spring and lime wedge and ENJOY!


Make it VIRGIN! If you do not drink alcohol, are expecting, or just wanting to hold back, a virgin Moscow mule is actually the perfect cocktail for you! The virgin version of a Moscow mule practically tastes the same since vodka is used as the alcohol. Make according to the recipe above but hold the vodka and add a little bit more sparkling water.
