Sometimes a gal just needs a cocktail, or perhaps two. Two is always better than one, amiright? And in the case of this delectable Moscow Mule with Gin cocktail, two gins are definitely better than one. This robust recipe combines good old fashioned gin with ginger beer, the famous spicy ingredient in your favorite Moscow Mule recipe.

All you gin lovers will LOVE this gin mule recipe. It takes the snappy ginger beer flavor of the classic Moscow Mule Cocktail and adds the sweetness of this Simple Syrup.  And once you toss in some fragrant fresh mint, lime and gin… ahh! You won’t believe how flawlessly these flavors come together. Moscow Mules are incredibly versatile too. Try this Georgia Mule or this Cherry Moscow Mule and see what I mean. The possibilities are endless!

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO MAKE A GOOD MOSCOW MULE WITH GIN?

  • Fresh mint leaves are a must! It adds such a refreshing element to this gin mule.
  • Mix up a batch of my Simple Syrup. As the name implies, it’s very easy to make and you can use it a million different ways.
  • Lime juice. You can use lime juice from the grocery store, or squeeze your own limes (enough to make about half a cup for four servings).
  • Good quality gin and ginger beer round out your list of ingredients.
