Fresh Squeezed Moscow Mule – A Vodka Cocktail

Fresh Squeezed Moscow Mule - orange juice, ginger beer, vodka, lime juice

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.

  1. Thanks for the recipe! I think the copper mug really makes the drink. I found them on Amazon relatively cheap.
