Grapefruit Mint Moscow Mules
I've been chomping at the bit to make another variety of Moscow Mule. Any excuse to use my favorite copper mugs, I'll take it! I found these gorgeous grapefruits at the market the other day, and knew that it was a sign.
If you've never had one, Grapefruit Moscow Mules add a bit of a tart punch to the old classic, and also some beautiful color.
Here's what you'll need: -moscow mule mugs -your favorite vodka (I used Tito's) -fresh lime juice -ginger beer -fresh grapefruit juice -fresh grapefruit slices -fresh mint -limes -ice
Here's what to do: 1) Fill each mug with ice. 2) Add 1.5 oz. of vodka, 2 oz. of fresh squeezed grapefruit juice and 1 tbsp. fresh lime juice to each mug. 3) Top off each mug with ginger beer until full. Use spoon to stir lightly to combine ingredients. 4) Garnish each mug with a sprig of mint, a slice of lime and a slice of grapefruit.
And enjoy! To me, this is a great cocktail for the transition from summer to fall. Light and cool enough for warmer weather, but substantial enough for those chillier days as well.
What is your favorite type of Moscow Mule? Let me know in the comments and I will be sure to make some :)
See ya next week!
