As Summer turns to Autumn, one of the best cocktails to help you make the transition is the Classic Moscow Mule. Peaches are overflowing the farmer stands and local grocery stores during the month of September, so why not utilize there deliciousness!
For this libation I thought of adding some big juicy peaches to keep that summer vibe flowing while the ginger flavors ease us into fall.
1 1/2 OUNCES PEACH VODKA
1/2 OUNCE FRESH LIME JUICE
1/2 CUP GINGER BEER
1-2 STEMS OF FRESH MINT PLUS MORE FOR GARNISH
1 PEACH SLICED
FRESH LIME WEDGES, PEACHES, AND MINT FOR GARNISH
IN YOUR COPPER MUG, MUDDLE 1/2 YOUR FRESH PEELED PEACH AND FRESH MINT SMASHED BETWEEN YOUR HANDS TO RELEASE THE AROMATICS.
POUR IN VODKA, LIME JUICE AND ICE CUBES. TOP WITH GINGER BEER, STIR TO COMBINE AND GARNISH.
I love a good Moscow Mule because they are simple and easy to mix, but taste so refreshing. The copper mug, while not strictly necessary, really does add that extra special feel to the drink, plus they keep everything frosty cold.
