Ingredients

GINGER INFUSED SYRUP

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2-3 knobs fresh ginger peeled

MOSCOW MULE

  • 2 oz vodka
  • 1/2 oz ginger infused simple syrup
  • 1 oz lime juiced
  • 4 oz ginger beer
  • sprig of mint for garnish
  • fresh grated ginger (optional)

Instructions

MAKE THE GINGER INFUSED SYRUP

  • Make the ginger syrup by adding the sugar, water, and a chunk or two of fresh ginger to a small pot and bring it to a simmer.  Simmer for 10 mins or until the mixture starts to thicken.  Remove from the heat and let it cool completely. 

MAKE THE MOSCOW MULE

  • Add the vodka, ginger infused simple syrup, and lime juice to your glass. Give it a good stir!
  • Fill your copper cup or glass full of ice.  Crushed ice is nice, but you don't have to use it. Then pour in the ginger beer.
  • Grate some fresh ginger right over top of each cocktail.  To get a little fancy, garnish with a sprig of mint and serve.

Notes

You can also fill your glass with ice first and mix the drink in a cocktail shaker and then pour over the ice.  Whatever is easier for you!
