Grapefruit Moscow Mule: A Tangy Twist on a Classic

This tangy twist on the classic Moscow mule with fresh grapefruit and rosemary is just what you need to sip on this weekend!

Hey y’all! It’s Sara and Pam from Biscuits & Burlap. We’re popping in to bring you another tasty cocktail created especially for you, the readers of Ugly Duckling House: The Grapefruit Moscow Mule!

What is a “Moscow mule”?

Moscow mules are the latest craze in the cocktail world and they are all over drink menus and Pinterest boards. Basically, a “Moscow mule” is a drink with ginger beer, lime, and vodka, usually garnished with lime and fresh mint. There are lots of different variations out there, mainly made by varying up the type of liquor or by adding a different fruits.

Did you know grapefruit is a winter fruit? There is just nothing like the smell and taste of a fresh ruby red grapefruit so we had to incorporate them into our Moscow mules. We left the limes in the traditional recipe out of this recipe because the grapefruit is already so tart. We also love fresh herbs in a cocktail so we decided rather than simply garnishing the drink with mint, we would muddle fresh mint and rosemary into the grapefruit juice in a cocktail shaker.

Add in the citrus vodka and shake it well. Strain the herbs out as you pour that delicious mixture over ice into one of those (incredibly cute) copper Moscow mule mugs. Top it off with ginger beer for a spicy finish and garnish with leftover mint, rosemary, grapefruit, or even a little lime zest!

Have you tried a mule yet? What is your favorite variation? Be sure to let us know in the comments what you think of this one!
