As the weather starts to get warmer, it's hard to beat a refreshing Moscow Mule. This classic cocktail has been a favorite for decades, and it's easy to see why. Made with vodka, ginger beer, mint, and lime, it's a tasty balance of refreshing, spicy, and sour. However, the downside of this cocktail is that ginger beer is loaded with sugar and often contains very little or no real ginger. We've even seen ginger beers that have over 50 grams of sugar per can! If you want to upgrade your Moscow Mule this year with real ginger juice and 80% less sugar, try replacing the ginger beer for a can of Soov!
Soov ginger drinks are made with a large helping of real ginger juice, a fraction of the sugar, and other stomach-friendly ingredients like lemon, mint, chamomile, and pineapple. For a healthier Moscow Mule, all you need is your favorite vodka and a can of Soov Mint which already contains ginger, mint, and lemon juice, making it an incredibly fast and easy recipe.
To make a healthy Moscow Mule with Soov ginger drinks, you'll need:
2 oz vodka
5 oz of Soov Mint
(Optional) Squeeze a little lime in or garnish with mint
To start, fill a copper mug (or any other glass of your choice) with ice. Add the vodka and, if you're feeling fancy, squeeze in the juice from a quarter lime. Then, pour in your Soov Mint and give it a good stir. If you'd like, you can add a sprig of mint for an extra burst of flavor.
That's it! Your healthy Moscow Mule is ready to enjoy. Not only is this cocktail delicious and refreshing, but it's also a great way to get the health benefits of ginger in a tasty and convenient form.
If you're not a fan of vodka, swap it out in the recipe for these liquors and make these other delicious cocktails:
Bourbon = Kentucky Mule
Dark Rum = Dark n' Stormy
Mezcal = Mezcal Mule
Gin = Gin Buck
So next time you're in the mood for a cocktail, give this healthy Mule a try. Your taste buds (and your body) will thank you!
