I did a bit of traveling as a kid, and a trip on an airplane wasn’t complete without a glass of tasty ginger ale. I don’t know why, but I only drank it on planes, and aside from the destinations, it was something I looked forward to with every trip. These days, I don’t need a flight to enjoy a grown-up version: this gingery Champagne Moscow Mule.

No need to choose between a glass of champagne and a Moscow Mule with this spicy-sweet twist on the Original Moscow Mule Recipe! It’s so refreshing! Maybe it’s the ginger, or the citrus, or the fragrant mint but it all blends beautifully together. You will love it! Copper-mug cocktails are so versatile too; these Jalapeno Moscow Mules and Strawberry Basil Moscow Mules are some favorite recipes.

  • You only need SIX ingredients to whip up this amazing mule recipe!
  • Find some fresh mint leaves and lime juice. You’ll muddle those together with my Simple Syrup.
  • You’ll need champagne. No need to spend a fortune on a fancy bottle of champs; any kind will do.
  •  A few ounces of your favorite vodka and a can or so of ginger ale round out your shopping list.

  • Combine half a tablespoon each of simple syrup and lime juice in a mixing glass.
  • Add the mint leaves and, using a muddler or the end of a wooden spoon, mash it all together to release the freshness of the mint.
  • Next add your favorite vodka and strain into a champagne glass (or Moscow Mule mugs if you have those on hand)
  • Top it off with champagne and ginger ale.
  • Garnish with a lime wedge and some more mint. And you’ll have the freshest, most fragrant cocktail to cool off your summer nights.
