Strawberry Moscow Mule with Hard Truth Vodka

Skip the teddy bears and chocolate-covered strawberries this year and spoil your sweetie with this Strawberry Moscow Mule instead!

Our favorite kind of staying-in-date-night usually involves me making some sort of cocktail and renting a movie. We love trying different drinks, and a Moscow mule was one of the first cocktails I made for us when I got into at-home bartending. Mostly because they’re incredibly simple to make (no cocktail shaker or strainer needed!).

We’re been drinking mules for years, but I never thought to muddle some fruit for a little additional flavor! I don’t think we’ll ever be able to enjoy them the regular way again, because the muddled strawberries in this make it the perfect mix of refreshing and sweet. I used my favorite plain vodka (never thought I’d have one of those!) by Hard Truth Spirits. We always have a bottle of this stuff on hand, because a good plain vodka is a staple to any at-home bar!

 

Ingredients (Makes one drink):

  • 3 oz. Hard Truth Vodka 
  • 6 strawberries, muddled
  • Sprinkle of sugar
  • Crushed ice
  • 1/2 oz. Lime Juice
  • Ginger beer

Directions:

  1. Cut the strawberries in chunks, add them to a glass, sprinkle with sugar and muddle until mostly smooth, then add to a copper mug
  2. Add vodka and lime juice
  3. Fill most of the way with crushed ice and stir
  4. Top with ginger beer, and lightly stir to combine
  5. Garnish with a heart-shaped strawberry
  6. Enjoy!
