Pineapple Strawberry Moscow Mule

Did you know Smirnoff vodka was originally developed way back in 1941 by the president of Smirnoff Vodka as a way to jump start vodka sales in the United States? The original Moscow Mule was made with just three ingredients, vodka, fresh squeezed lime juice and ginger beer. Introduced at a bar frequented by lots of celebrities and society figures, the plan to jump start sales worked! The Moscow Mule soon appeared all over bar menus, served in its iconic copper mug.

The combination of vodka, lime and ginger beer makes for a winning team. They are crisp and tart with a palate refreshing coolness, and the Moscow Mule is still a hit today. One thing we really like about Moscow Mules is how they are an excellent foundation for adding other flavors to create unique variations.

Over the past few years we have made some real great variations like a Blueberry Cucumber Moscow Mule, a Fresh Squeezed Mule or a Campfire Mule! We are always looking for new flavor combinations to add to a Moscow Mule. We liked the way that our a Hatch Chile and Raspberry Moscow Mule combined heat and sweet! Since we recently had dipped our toes into the tropical world of Tiki with our Nene Bird cocktail, we decided to use a little tropic heat to make our Spicy Pineapple Strawberry Moscow Mule!

How Did We Make It Spicy?

Pineapple and strawberry are fantastic combination, the pineapple an acidic sweet tart that partners up really well with the sweet berry freshness of the strawberries. One of our favorite savory flavors is the smokey heat from chipotle peppers, which just happens to work really well with pineapple.


With these flavors in mind, we decided that a combination of the sweet and heat would be great in a cocktail!

What Ingredients are Needed for the Spicy Pineapple Strawberry Moscow Mule?

  • Spicy Tropical Syrup
    • Water
    • Chipotle Peppers
    • Sugar
    • Pineapple Puree
    • Strawberries
  • Spicy Pineapple Strawberry Moscow Mule
    • Spicy Tropical Syrup
    • Ginger Beer
    • Lime Juice
    • Vodka


We decided that making a spicy tropical syrup would be just the ticket to making this pineapple cocktail a hit. The spicy tropical syrup used fresh pineapple puree, chopped fresh strawberries and chipotle peppers in adobo sauce.

This might sound like an unusual combination for sweet syrup. But then when you get the smokey heat and the sweet together, this syrup not only tastes great, but smells amazing!

Adding the spicy tropical syrup into the base Moscow Mule recipe really spices up the drink. When combined with the lime and ginger from the Moscow Mule, the spicy sweet comes to life. It transforms the Spicy Pineapple Strawberry Moscow Mule into a lively cocktail perfect for celebrating!

I am crazy in love with the sound of that spicy tropical syrup! Sweet and spicy is such a great combo and combining fruit with chipotle in adobo just takes that to the next level. Your mule variations are always so creative, and I'm looking forward to adding this one to my entertaining repertoire. Summer's coming soon, and this would be perfect for entertaining poolside!
