I am sure that you have heard of the cocktail called Moscow Mule. It has become pretty popular over the past year or so. I love the copper cup that it is served in. This drink has been around since the 1940s. Mules make a great summer cocktail because they are refreshing and frosty.
Today I am going to show you how to make an even better version of the Moscow Mule. It is basically the same except for one ingredient that is a game-changer. I am adding a simple shot of matcha green tea. By doing this, my mule will be even more delicious and I will have natural energy from the matcha powder. No more mixing energy drinks with vodka. Now you have a much healthier option that will keep you energized even longer.
You will need:
- 2 tsp of matcha green tea powder
- Fresh mint leaves
- Ginger beer
- 2 oz of vodka
Squeeze half of a lime into each cup, and drop the lime into the cup when done.
Add one shot of vodka to each cup.
Fill ¾ with ginger beer.
Add 2 tsp of matcha with one cup of water. You can do this in a shaker or with your whisk.
Combine matcha with the rest of the ingredients in the cup and garnish with fresh mint leaves.
