Description

We went all in on these strawberry moscow mules – we actually made a huge batch of homemade strawberry infused vodka (which, by the way, is AMAZING) and served these alongside these pineapple jalapeño margaritas as the signature cocktails at my wedding! Safe to say both recipes were a big hit (they were gone quickly!).


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 oz strawberry infused vodka (recipe below)
  • 1/2 oz St. Germain
  • 3/4 oz lime juice
  • 1/2 oz mint simple syrup (recipe below)
  • 6 oz ginger beer
  • 2 strawberries, sliced

Strawberry Infused Vodka:

  • 1.75 L vodka of choice
  • 7 quarts fresh organic strawberries

Mint Simple Syrup:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves

Instructions

Cocktail:

  1. Add strawberries and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker and muddle.
  2. Add vodka, St. Germain, lime juice and a bit of ice, stir well, then strain into chilled copper mug.
  3. Top off with ginger beer. Garnish with fresh strawberries and mint and enjoy!

Strawberry Infused Vodka:

  1. Wash strawberries well and remove stems.
  2. Pour into sterilized glass ball jars & fill almost to top. Pour vodka to top of jar, fasten lid and store in a cool, dry place for 1 week.
  3. After a week, strain mixture through a fine sieve. You may have to strain once or twice to fully remove any leftover pulp. Return to jars or original vodka bottle and enjoy!

Simple Syrup:

  1. Combine sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves.
  2. Bring to a simmer, then remove from heat and add mint leaves.
  3. Let steep about 1 hour, then strain to remove mint leaves and transfer to glass jar to store in fridge for up to a month.

Notes

If you don’t want to make the infused vodka, you can substitute with your favorite vodka and add another strawberry or two for some extra flavor. Alternatively, you can also add some strawberries to the simple syrup – just strain before using.
