  • EST. COST:$2.25 SERVING

Ingredients

  • Ginger Syrup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tbsp ginger – unpeeled, finely grated
  • Moscow Mule
  • 3 tbsp vodka
  • 2/3 cup ginger beer
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp ginger syrup
  • Ice cubes
  • A slice of lime

Directions

  1. Make the ginger syrup by adding the water, sugar, and ginger to a small saucepan. Stir it all together and bring to a boil – this should only take a minute or two. Once boiling, remove from heat and let it hang out for 10 minutes.
  2. Strain the syrup into a cup, then use the back of a spoon to press out any remaining liquid. No strainer? Pour the syrup through a coffee filter instead.
  3. In a copper tumbler (optional, but looks fancy), add the vodka, ginger beer, lime juice, and ginger syrup. Stir and then add lots of ice and a slice of lime. There will be enough leftover syrup for several more drinks – if you don't use it all at once, you can store it in the fridge for a couple of weeks.
