This is a simple variation of that classic and very popular Moscow Mule cocktail that uses some of the fantastic oranges that are in season right now to add a sunny brightness to this refreshing drink.
We started out by squeezing the juice of a whole orange into a mixing glass. Pour the orange juice thru a fine mesh strainer to remove the majority of the pulp to make the drink a bit more smooth.
Pour the strained juice, vodka, and lime juice into a rocks glass or copper mug filled with crushed ice. Top with ginger beer and let the bubbles do the mixing. Garnish with candied ginger and an orange wedge.
- 2 oz Vodka
- 1 oz lime (or lemon juice)
- 2 oz orange juice
- 4 oz Crabbie's Ginger Beer
- Combine all ingredients over ice in a copper mug! Cheers!
