Can you believe that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner? I’m sharing a few delicious Valentine’s Day cocktails with all of you, the first one was the Caramel Creme Brulee Martini and today I have a Cherry Lime Moscow Mule Cocktail for your enjoyment.
Cherry Lime Moscow Mule Cocktail
- 3 ounces Smirnoff No. 21
- 1 bottle Cherry Ginger Beer
- 5 ounces Cherry Limeade
- Maraschino cherries and sliced limes for garnish
- In a cocktail shaker, mix ice, Smirnoff No. 21, Cherry Ginger Beer, and Cherry Limeade
- Stir until combined
- Strain into copper mug over ice
- Garnish with cherries and sliced limes
Moscow Mules have been so popular in years past (and how can you not love them, especially when you get to enjoy them out of awesome copper mugs). The Cherry Limeade is a great flavor to combine with the cherry ginger beer. It gives a nice sweetness to an otherwise spicy ginger beer.
Since Smirnoff is the original vodka used in Moscow Mules 75 years ago, it is the perfect vodka to use in this Moscow Mule recipe. It adds a smooth kick to the drink, and makes it even more delicious.
While this Cherry Lime Moscow Mule is perfect for Valentine’s Day, it could also be enjoyed throughout the year. I can imagine sipping it on the back porch watching the sunset on a warm summer evening. How are you celebrating Valentine’s Day?
