My drink of choice when I go out lately has been a few variations of the Moscow Mule. I love Ginger Beer and the lime juice gives it such an enjoyable taste. It’s not uncommon for me to fall in love with a specific cocktail and then learn out how to make my own version at home. I’ve had some yummy Moscow Mules from different venues like the Aloft WXYZ Bar, Yard House, Farenheit and the Cheesecake Factory. I also like to play hostess occasionally and serve as the event resident mixologist!
Here is how I create my Pineapple Moscow Mule… **Sometimes I sub the Vodka with Rum**
- 1 cup of ice
- 2 ounces of vodka or rum
- 2 ounces of pineapple juice
- 1 ounce of fresh lime juice
- ½ cup of Jamaican Ginger Beer
- 1 slice of pineapple for garnish
- 1 lime wedge for garnish
Fill your glass or (Moscow mule mug) with ice. Add vodka or rum, pineapple juice and lime juice. Pour Jamaican Ginger Beer and give it a quick swirl to lightly mix it. Garnish with pineapple wedge and/or lime wedge. This recipe serves 1 cocktail. Adjust recipe to make additional cocktails. Drink and enjoy!
The Moscow Mule is by far one of my favorite cocktails in addition to the Pina Colada, Bahama Mama and Mai Tai. Can you tell I have a love for tropical fruity drinks. I usually have them on the rocks but I’m not opposed to blended frozen daiquiris either. I’ve also invested in some drink recipe books so that I don’t run out of drink recipes when I’m entertaining. Once upon a time I wanted to be a bartender. I’ll just keep using my skills when I host events. I’m really passionate about it!
