WARM SUMMER DAYS ARE MEANT FOR PINEAPPLE MOSCOW MULES

When summer is in full swing, pineapple just seems to hit the spot! Tropical inspired cocktails are simply more flavorful on a warm summer day than a cold December one.

The flavors of both pineapple and lime pair well together for a sweet and zesty combination that is refreshing and delicious!

Add in the ginger beer with a little bit of spice and you have a citrus Moscow mule cocktail you will love!

HOW TO MAKE A PINEAPPLE MOSCOW MULE

A classic Moscow mule recipe has three main ingredients: vodka, ginger beer and lime juice which makes it a super easy cocktail to make.

This citrus version only has one more ingredient though for a total of 4. Still easy!

In order to get the pineapple flavor for this mule, you will add pineapple juice in addition to the vodka, ginger beer and lime juice. I used plain vodka but you can also use a pineapple vodka for extra pineapple flavor if you find one.

When you are ready to make this pineapple Moscow mule, all you need to do it pour all your ingredients together into a copper mug or other glassware over ice. Done!

If you want to get your drink a little more chilled, you can also shake your juice and vodka in a cocktail shaker with ice before adding to your mug with ice and ginger beer.

HELPFUL ITEMS FOR MAKING MOSCOW MULES

You don’t need anything fancy to make a pineapple Moscow mule which is another reason it is a favorite of mine.

I like having a basic bar set on hand because I tend to always measure my liquor with a jigger and also like having a dedicated stirrer on hand.

Muddlers can also come in handy if I’m making a different Moscow mule like my Watermelon Mule where I muddle fresh watermelon to release the juices.

Other than that, copper mugs is the only other item you might want to have on hand if you want to serve up Moscow mules in their classic barware!

HAND HAMMERED 100% COPPER MUGS: This is probably my favorite set because in addition to coming with 4 hand hammered copper mugs, it also includes matching straws and shot glass! They are strong, sturdy and beautiful! Plus it comes with a limited edition brass handle!

3 PIECE BAR SET: If you are going to make simple cocktails, this is my favorite bar set. It has a jigger, a muddler, and a trident cocktail stirrer. This last one means it has a mini “spoon” shape on one end like a traditional stirrer and a forked shape on the other. 

LARGE BAR SET: If you are going to be getting into more sophisticated cocktail recipes, including anything that needs to be shaken or strained, than I suggest upgrading to the full bar set. I love having everything on hand. You never know when you want to try something new!

Notes

WHAT IF I WANT AN EVEN STRONGER PINEAPPLE FLAVOR?

If you want to add a stronger pineapple flavor or fresh fruit into the cocktail, you can do one of two things:

  1. Muddle 1/3 cup pineapple at the bottom of the mug as the first step. This works easier with very soft fresh pineapple or canned pineapple, OR
  2. Puree 1/3 cup pineapple in a blender. If making puree, you could use fresh or frozen pineapple.
