If you have ever had a Moscow Mule both in a normal glass versus a Copper Mug then you already know that the ONLY way to have a Moscow Mule is in a Copper Mug. If it’s not made in a Copper Mug then don’t even bother with it. They don’t even taste the same when it’s in a normal glass.
This past year I have had my fair share of Moscow Mules and they are definitely one of my favorite cocktails. However, I found another cocktail that is as equally delicious as my beloved Moscow Mule. It’s called a Strawberry Basil Lemonade and I found the recipe for it over on the thekitchn.com, you just need to adjust some of the measurements to make sure that it fits into your Pure Copper Hammered Moscow Mule Mug by Stubborn Mule instead of a 16 oz. glass! Make sure you try this one out, it’s not only delicious but super refreshing.
Strawberry Basil Lemonade
1 Copper Mug
3 strawberries – de-stemmed
5 basil leaves
1.5 ounce Smirnoff Strawberry Vodka
1 ounce Island Oasis Strawberry Puree (or just pureed strawberries)
Fill with Lemonade (I use Organic Lemonade)
Muddle 3 strawberries – de-stemmed, with the five basil leaves and Smirnoff in a 16-ounce glass. Mix Strawberry Vodka, and Island Oasis Strawberry Puree in mixing glass or martini shaker. Add ice, shake for 15 seconds and pour into glass. Fill with lemonade and stir.
Garnish with extra strawberry and basil.
The Pure Copper Hammered Moscow Mule Mug by Stubborn Mule is made from 100% pure Copper and is hand crafted in India. It’s also dishwasher safe but I recommend hand washing and drying with a hand towel to preserve the Cooper. You can purchase this beautiful mug over on Amazon.com (styles may vary).
