Strawberry Moscow Mules are a super easy way to mix up traditional moscow mules! Serve in a frosty copper mug for the perfect cocktail!
And here you thought I forgot about Valentine's Day! Never. As my poor husband would gladly tell you. I never forget! Each year, we struggle with Valentine's Day, even more so now that we're parents. Other than New Year's Eve, it's the hardest day of the year to find a sitter, so we don't even try. Then when the day gets here, I'm disappointed.
I watch the floods of posts on Facebook of flowers, awesome dates and extravagant gestures and I pout a little bit. Anyone else? I know it's ridiculous of me. Maybe avoiding Facebook is the best plan of attack. Anybody can order flowers. My husband does a lot of things, year round, that are a heck of a lot harder than ordering flowers!
Last week, I saw my blogger friend Becky's Valentine's cocktail that she named Love Potion #9 and I couldn't get it out of my head! I loved EVERYTHING about it. The glass. The cocktail pick. The dry ice (WHOA). The deep color of the martini. And the ridiculously cute heart-shaped strawberries that garnished the cocktail.
I've been meaning to make a Strawberry Moscow Mule recipe for quite some time now, and those teeny heart-shaped strawberries gave me the push to finally do it. I'm quite addicted to Moscow Mules, if you couldn't tell by my Cranberry Moscow Mule and this SUPER popular Cherry Limeade Moscow Mule! I absolutely love this strawberry mule. I think that strawberry, ginger and lime may be my best flavor combo yet!
Like any moscow mule, this Strawberry Moscow Mule is truly best when served frosty cold in a chilled copper mug. But, copper mugs are expensive. I've acquired my set of six mugs over 3 years by asking for them as gifts! I have a link to some fairly inexpensive mugs below if you're on a budget like me. I hope you enjoy this recipe and Happy Valentine's Day!
Equipment used in this Strawberry Moscow Mule recipe:
- 1.5 ounces vodka (1 shot)
