Confession time – I had never had a Moscow Mule until this recipe. A little pathetic eh! Don’t get me wrong, I have always wanted try one, mainly because of the mug. The copper mug is what the Moscow Mule is known for, and I couldn’t have loved it more. I must admit that for this being my first Moscow Mule I was extremely impressed, seriously so so tasty!
When I got the new McGuinness Ruby Red Grapefruit mixer complete with a copper mug I was super happy. I personally thought making a Moscow Mule would be hard, but it was actually so easy to do! The mixer is so tasty and the bottle came with a bunch of different cocktail recipes; I can’t wait to try them all: grapefruit paloma, pink prairie, cool ruby, so many!
HOW TO MAKE MOSCOW MULES
I started off by by cutting the lime, grapefruit and mint. Then I combined the lime juice, McGuinness Ruby Red Grapefruit mixer and vodka in the copper mug. I mixed it, added a handful of ice and topped it with ginger beer. To garnish it, I used the mint, lime and grapefruit wedges, and it’s ready to serve.

DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF THE MOSCOW MULE
Now that I know how easy it is to make this amazing drink I just want to try different versions of it. I found this recipe for a caramel apple that looks divine! And let’s get even more into the fall spirit with this amazing pumpkin spice recipe. So many recipes… so little time. Just kidding that is what the weekends are for! right?
Now that I have discovered the McGuinness Liqueurs I want them all. They are amazing for all sorts of cocktails. I really want to try their Cherry Whisky mixer and make the Cherry Shake cocktails. As well as the Alexander cocktail (which is perfect for the holiday season) using their Crème De Cacao Brown mixer.
