Moscow Mule

Cocktails-with-Fever-Tree----Moscow-Mule

Misleadingly, the Moscow Mule didn’t originate in russia. the New York-born cocktail is aptly named for its spirit and icy-cold exterior.

There are a couple of things you should know about the Moscow Mule. Firstly, cocktail aficionados will insist that it must be served in a copper mug for the authentic drinking experience. This has very little to do with flavour and a lot to do with copper’s properties as an excellent heat conductor. This is a drink served as icy cold as the streets of Moscow in winter. Sipping from a copper mug will not only chill your lips, but your hands too, making the drink seem much colder than it would served in a regular glass. If you don’t happen to have a copper mug to hand, an enamelware mug works well too, but we won’t pass judgement if your home-bar only has more typical drinking receptacles – a glass will do just fine.

The second thing to mention is that it is such a simple cocktail. Its simplicity also means each ingredient is of equal importance. There’s no camouflaging of poor quality here. The Fever-Tree Ginger Beer is made with three types of real ginger, giving it a distinct, fiery flavour that is perfect for a Moscow Mule cocktail.

Ingredients

  • 5 oz of Fever-Tree Ginger Beer
  • 1,5 oz of premium vodka like the Grey Goose
  • Le jus d’une lime | Juice of 1 lime
  • Glaçons | Ice

Instructions

  1. Squeeze the lime juice into a copper Moscow Mule mug, dropping in the spent rind.
  2. Fill until overflowing with ice cubes and pour in the vodka.
  3. Finish with the Ginger Beer and serve with a stirring rod.

Sparkling Paloma, the latest of the Cocktails with Fever-Tree

it turns out the Paloma, not the Margarita, is Mexico’s most beloved cocktail.

The paloma is a thirst-quenching tequila cocktail that’s very simple to mix up. Paloma in Spanish means “dove,” and it’s a fitting name for this sparking pink grapefruit drink. Though there are variations, two elements are madatory in any paloma recipe: tequila and grapefruit. It’s a beautiful pairing, especially with a juicy grapefruit slice and a little fizz.

Ingredients

  • ¼ oz. Tequila like the Patrón
  • ¾ oz. of Fever-Tree Sparkling Pink Grapefruit
  • Optional:  Salt rim
  • Garnish:Grapefruit wheel

Instructions

  1. Add tequila to a highball glass, add ice and top with Fever-Tree Sparkling Pink Grapefruit. Garnish with a juicy pink grapefruit wedge.
