It’s been a minute since we made cocktails here on WGC and today I’m bringing you one of my favorite summertime drinks – a Moscow Mule!! It’s just a few ingredients but mixed together everything really shines! Grab your favorite kind of vodka, some really great ginger beer, some blackberries and lime juice and that’s it! You can serve it up in a traditional copper cup which keeps it super chilled, or in a regular glass! Doesn’t really matter!! Happy weekend 🙂

And just a word to the wise – using a good quality ginger beer makes all the difference when it comes to Moscow Mules! We’ve been on the Bundaberg train for a looooong time! It’s our fav and we keep a few bottles on hand at all times so we can whip up these Blackberry Moscow Mules anytime the mood strikes!

Need some more summertime cocktail inspiration… I’ve got ya covered:

    Thanks so much for thinking of those of us who don’t drink for various reasons. Would love more mocktails for us. There are more of us out there than you know. You’d be helping a lot of people jazz up their life!
