While a standard Moscow mule is delicious, we took it a step further by adding muddled blueberries for the perfect summer cocktail filled with fanciful flavors and colors. Not only will you be delighted by this easy twist, you’ll be creating a drink worth sharing with friends.
If you’re looking to create a more colorful cocktail, make sure that you purchase small, ripe, blueberries and muddle them thoroughly. Large blueberries will also work, but because their flesh is white you’ll not achieve a beautiful pink tint.
Want to turn this cocktail into a mocktail? The ginger beer is non-alcoholic so simply skip the vodka. With or without, you will have a refreshing drink with amazing flavor.

Moscow mules are traditionally served in a copper mug because the metal quickly takes on the icy temperature of the cocktail, giving the drink an extra-cool sensation!
