Moscow mules are very popular and for good reason: they’re perfectly balanced with just the right amount of sweetness, spiciness, tanginess and effervescence. Since pomegranate is in season in the winter, I decided to add it to the cocktail for a pop of tartness and beautiful color.

To make it easy and reduce stress this holiday season, I love using grocery home delivery to cut down on my shopping time. In addition to all the fresh groceries, I can also get accessories/homeware delivered to my door including this beautiful copper muddler.

For effervescence and a slight spicy kick, I add both ginger beer and club soda to the cocktail along with a splash of pomegranate juice.

  1. The ‘Moscow’ in Moscow Mule represents the vodka that is used to make the drink. If you’re making it with gin, I think Pomegranate Mule will suffice, or better, a Pomegranate Gin Buck, which is most accurate.

    Further, I’m not sure I understand the soda. If you want to dilute the ginger beer snappiness, then just use ginger ale instead which has less bite. If you want it to be more effervescent, then just use ginger ale instead which has more carbonation. What I’m trying to say is, you’d save yourself an unnecessary ingredient by just using ginger ale here instead of both ginger beer and soda. If you’re trying to watch calories or something, you can get a pretty decent substitute with just club soda, a splash of Coke, and a dash of bitters.

    Also, you might consider skipping the store-bought pomegranate juice. A medium-sized pomegranate gives you about 4-6 ounces of juice. Peel the rind, put the seeds in with your limes, and muddle.

    Cheers.

  2. I had to improvise a bit with some ingredients as we don’t sell everything in the Netherlands, but it was delicious and I think the real version as described here would be even more delicious!
