How to Make the Best Peach Moscow Mules
Hey there, welcome! Today I’m sharing one of my husband and my favorite cocktails – a peach Moscow mule.
It’s perfect for a hot Summer day, and if you love peach as we do – this will be your go-to cocktail in no time.
We’ve tried many recipes for peach Moscow mules over the past several years – and this combination I am sharing with you today is our all-time favorite.
The key is not only in the ingredients – but the brands we use.
Here’s what you’ll need. And like I mentioned, the brands you use really do make a big difference.
- 360 Georgia Peach vodka
- Barritt’s Ginger Beer
- Fresh lime (or lime juice)
- Mint leaves, lime wedges, peach slices to garnish – optional
- Copper mugs
- Bamboo picks for garnishes – optional
We’ve found the 360 Georgia Peach flavored vodka has the most peach flavor. We also love the 360 Huckleberry and Bing Cherry flavors.
Barritt’s ginger beer makes a huge difference. Some ginger beers are really potent and spicy – but this Barritt’s is the perfect fit for the Georgia peach vodka.
Your local liquor store will likely have a good set of copper mugs. Or you can find Copper mugs online here.
Recipe Instructions + Tips
Start by filling your copper mug with ice – we fill the mug close to the top with ice. (But if you plan to slow sip – you’ll want to add less ice because it will get watered down.)
Add one shot of 360 Georgia Peach vodka into the mug with the ice or about 1.5 ounces.
Pour Barritt’s Ginger Beer to fill the mug or about half of the can or 6 ounces.
Of course, the garnishes are entirely optional – but makes the presentation of the cocktail. It’s a nice touch, especially if you are entertaining guests.Print
