The Moscow Mule was invented in 1941 and quickly became a craze, first with celebrities and then throughout the United States. It probably had a greater role in the rise of vodka than any other drink, with the exception, perhaps, of the martini. The idea behind the name is that vodka comes from Russia and ginger beer has a kick on it like a mule. We figured that for modern palates, the ginger kick is not quite enough, so at Borsch, Vodka and Tears we make them using our homemade chilli vodka.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
30ml Chilli vodka
1/4 lime, cut into 2 wedges
120ml ginger beer

Method

  1. Take a 295 ml highball glass and fill it with ice. Add the chilli vodka, squeeze in the lime juice and drop the wedges into the glass. Pour in enough ginger beer to fill the glass. We make them with dry ginger ale on request but I think the original is still the best.
