• For a somewhat more mature and full bodied version of the Moscow Mule, add a few dashes of aromatic bitters to the drink.
• Make sure to use plenty of ice. That will keep your drink colder, crisper and fizzier longer.
• If you can’t find Ginger Beer, muddle some fresh ginger in the base of your mule cup and use Ginger Ale instead. That will give you the spicy kick from the fresh ginger.
