I love summer vodka cocktails, and these American mules are so refreshing! A few years ago I shared with you a boozy sparkling lemonade made with Smirnoff Red White and Berry. I love that vodka flavor and thought it would be great for making mixed drinks with ginger beer. So, I headed out to the store so I could come back and whip up this fun ginger mule recipe.
Smirnoff Red White and Berry Vodka
Y'all.....I had such a hard time finding a bottle of Smirnoff Red White and Berry vodka this year. I went to eight different stores before I found one that wasn't sold out. It's limited edition, only available during the summer months, and it's apparently super popular! The vodka is a blend of cherry, citrus, and blue raspberry - such great combination.
Anyway, after I finally found a bottle, it was time for some of my favorite berry blast vodka drinks. Plus, I love any excuse to use my copper mugs.
Vodka Mule Recipe
A traditional vodka mule recipe has vodka, ginger beer, muddled mint leaves, and a squeeze of lime. If you are wondering "is ginger beer alcoholic?" the answer is no. In fact, the difference between ginger ale and ginger beer is that ginger beer tastes like an amped up version of ginger ale. It's more spicy and has a bit of a kick to it. You should be able to find ginger beer in most grocery stores. If it's not on the soda aisle, it will probably be with the mixers. Or you can just order some here from Amazon.
By the way, have you tried Amazon Prime Now? My family has had a Prime membership for years and I love that 2 day shipping. But with Prime Now, you get free two hour shipping on orders over $35. You can get things like groceries and other household items delivered same day. Won't that come in handy when you're getting ready for a party, and need something from the store but are short on time? My cousin was telling me about ordering a little bouncy house for her 4th of July party that same morning and how convenient it was. If you don't already have an Amazon Prime membership, you can sign up for a free 30 day trial here.
Okay, enough about Amazon Prime. If you like ginger beer cocktails recipes, I'm sure you'll like this one. And since I had to really hunt to find a bottle of Smirnoff Red White and Berry, I'm making sure to put an extra one in my liquor cabinet to save for next summer LOL.
