The Ultimate Moscow Mule

The Moscow Mule is one of those cocktails that can either be pretty meh or it can be spectacular.  The trick?  More Ginger.  

Which means, you need better ginger beer.  Fortunately for you, I'm kicking off a partnership with Crabbie's Alcoholic Ginger Beer who makes excellent ginger beer, and ultimately better ginger beer means better Moscow Mules.

Crabbie's is an alcoholic ginger beer made in Edinburgh, Scotland, and when it is made ginger is steeped into the beer for up to 6 weeks before blending, making it super gingery.  It's a great alternative to a traditional lager, but it's really delicious in cocktails!

For my Moscow Mules, I like to add a bit of ginger syrup or ginger liqueur, whatever you have on hand, to kick up the ginger just a bit more.  Top with a bit of soda water to keep this cocktail from being too high octane (we are using alcoholic Ginger Beer after all), and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
