THIS RASPBERRY MOSCOW MULE RECIPE IS MY FAVORITE!
This is just one of many Moscow mule recipes on this site, but this is definitely my favorite one!
Raspberries, limes and ginger makes a perfect combination, especially because you have a little bit of sweet, zesty and spicy! It’s the ultimate summer cocktail in my mind.
The raspberry flavor added to this recipe is nice and subtle. You get the delicious flavor without it being overpowering.
Even friends who are not huge raspberry fans will love this Raspberry Moscow mule! Truly!
HOW TO MAKE A RASPBERRY MOSCOW MULE:
Even though I am adding the raspberry flavor to this recipe, you still only need the 3 main ingredients of any Moscow mule recipe.
- Vodka – Instead of plain vodka though you are going to use raspberry vodka. If you don’t want to use raspberry vodka, I will provide a different option further down.
- Ginger Beer – I prefer using diet ginger beer to cut down the sugar in the recipe.
- Limes – Fresh lime juice is KEY! Do not use bottled.
You will take these 3 ingredients, add them to your copper mug or other preferred cocktail glass with ice and enjoy. Easy peasy!
DO I NEED TO USE RASPBERRY VODKA?
Raspberry vodka is essential in my opinion to this raspberry Moscow mule. It’s also probably my favorite flavored vodka in general.
However, if you do not want to purchase raspberry vodka OR if you want to add even more raspberry flavor, you can do one of two things.
- Muddle fresh raspberries at the bottom of your mug before adding in the other ingredients or ice.
- OR, use a raspberry juice in addition to ginger beer.
HELPFUL ITEMS FOR MAKING RASPBERRY MOSCOW MULES:
Making Moscow mules doesn’t require a lot of special tools which is another reason I love making homemade Moscow mules! A regular bar set with muddler and jigger is enough to help make the cocktail prep step even faster and easier.
The only other thing you might want are copper mugs! It’s the classic way to serve and enjoy the drink. I have a ton of suggestions in my HOW TO MAKE MOSCOW MULES post, but I’ve also included my favorite set below!
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!

Raspberry vodka is what gives this raspberry Moscow Mule its raspberry flavor. However, if you don't want to buy raspberry vodka or simply want a stronger raspberry flavor, you could do one of two things:
