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 orange Moscow Mule.
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. We loved the addiction of the tangy orange juice to make the Orange Moscow Mule, but didn’t want the pulpiness.

Pour the strained juice, vodka, and lime juice into a 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.
