She Does The City - How to Make a Moscow Mule

"It’s official: the summer of ginger beer is upon us! Tasty and refreshing with an unexpected kick, Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer has become a staple in my home over the last year, and my go-to for hosting and entertaining.

Bursting with flavour, the ginger is steeped for up to six weeks before bottling, and then combined with four secret ingredients to create a complex flavour with citrus notes and a warming finish.

A triple threat in a boozy world, it’s perfect on its own (just add ice and a handful of lime wedges), is versatile in cocktails, and comes in the cutest bottle (we’re suckers for pretty branding ‘round here).

If you haven’t tried a Moscow Mule with Crabbie’s, you’re seriously missing out! The best part? You can play around with flavours and simple syrups to create loads of delicious and unusual flavour combos like lavender and burnt orange, or cranberry and cinnamon.

Now that they’re in season, I’m all about them Strawberries and Mint Moscow Mules. Here’s what you’ll need for 2 servings:

  • 1/2 bottle of Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer
  • 3 ounces of  vodka
  • 1/2 lime juice
  • 4 strawberries, muddled
  • 4 strawberries, sliced
  • mint sprigs, muddled (to taste)
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • 1 cup crushed ice (or make your own like I did!)

Garnish: strawberry, mint sprig and lime zest.

How I do:

1. Add ice, lime juice, muddled strawberries, muddled mint and vodka
2. Stir mixture
3.Top with Crabbie’s Ginger Beer

Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer is available at LCBO and liquor retailers across Canada for $3.60.

Thank you to BYOB Cocktail Emporium for providing all the sexy barware for our recipe shoot."
