Spicy Moscow Mule

the best moscow mule recipe

It’s National Vodka Day so it only seems appropriate to celebrate with one of my favorite classic or vintage drinks – Moscow Mules! I love the refreshing flavor of Moscow Mules and they are a crowd pleaser all year round at our home.  Lately, I’ve been testing out some new flavors for this classic cocktail and my favorite is to make them spicy! I really love spicy cocktails as they balance out the sweetness but bring out so many flavors. For this version of a Moscow Mule, I used serrano peppers which have a bit more kick than jalapenos, but that only means more amazing flavor in your cocktail.

Get the recipe below. Cheers!
