Moscow Mule Recipe: Cocktails with Oprah

Moscow Mule

On a recent camping trip with her buddies, Oprah made Moscow Mules for everyone, making it the must-drink cocktail of the spring (Kidding. If you must drink a cocktail, you have a problem. It’s just a cocktail people are interested in because of Oprah). A Moscow Mule is a pretty simple cocktail to make with only six ingredients and no special techniques. Now, where I come from a Moscow mule has about five ingredients too many for a camping trip (My preferred camping cocktail is bourbon in a flask), but if you want to make your own for a camping trip or an evening at home, check out the simple recipe below.

Oprah Winfrey’s Moscow Mule Recipe (adapted from Oprah.com)

1 ounce vodka
1 teaspoon simple sugar
fresh lime juice
1/2 cup ginger beer
1 sprig fresh mint
1 slice of lime

Put ice and vodka into a copper cup (Don’t have a copper cup? Use an iced glass.). Add the simple sugar, lime juice, ginger beer, and stir. Serve with the slice of lime and mint sprig.
