Like a Moscow Mule? Try a Lavender Mule!


Lavender Moscow Mule Ingredients:

  • Ginger beer
  • Lavender extract
  • Lime, wedged
  • Mint, fresh leaves
  • Ice  

 

Procedure:

  1. Be careful when measuring the lavender extract....it can be strong! Start with just a couple of drops.
  2. Pour the ginger beer, freshly squeezed lime and lavender extract over ice, then mix.
  3. After a few shakes, serve the cold drink in a copper cup.
  4. Put a lime wedge on the rim and fresh mint leaves on top.

Tip: Go for Gosling Ginger Beer… There are quite a few out there. But this one has a good tang :) 

So let me tell you how I came across this cocktail.

One morning, while nursing a hangover, I decided I quit. I won’t drink anymore.

No more heavy head. No more empty stomach through puking. No more embarrassment. I just have to stop drinking.

 Not even social drinking? Well… Maybe I’m lying there. I’m always gonna drink with buddies :) But I gotta do it right. That's when I came across Moscow Mules. A bartender gave me a this drink just a couple weeks ago. Pushed it over the counter to me… And….

Voila!

A drink in a copper cup was pushed over the counter. It has a lime wedge and some mint leaves on top.

I started tasting all the different Moscow Mule flavors. And I came across A rare version of the Moscow Mule.  The lavender Moscow Mule.

After three cups without feeling nauseous, I asked for the recipe. So here ladies and gentleman… here's a simple recipe to host your next guests with.

Great recipe, the lavender make the mule even more refreshing. I have also used lavender bitters and honey as an offset. Enjoy!
