Moscow mule blood orange

Moscow mule blood orange

Moscow Mule Orange Blood is a fun way to spice up your classic Moscow Mule and try something unique. The taste of the citrus fruit is delicious.

As always, this cocktail has a very good balance of sweet, sour, tart and alcoholic. There’s a reason everyone loves the Moscow mule.

Spicy ginger mixed with vodka and lime is a perfectly balanced, easy to prepare and delicious cocktail. So why not add a little variety with a touch of orange blood?

By adding an ounce of orange juice and a few slices of a nice orange (if you can find any!), you’ll turn this classic into a citrus refresher that can be served anytime.

If you like the Moscow Mule, you might also want to try some other classics like Mojito, Gin Fizz, and Dark & Stormy.

Copper cups


A copper cup is not necessary. But I guarantee it tastes better when you have it. I don’t know why, but it has an effect that cannot be obtained in a normal glass.

First, the copper keeps the drink incredibly cold and the ice doesn’t melt as quickly, so it doesn’t get watery. Like you’re not drinking it fast enough to avoid it anyway.

What kind of ginger beer should you use for a Moscow mule?

Ginger beer is not the same as ginger ale. It’s important. Of course, if you can’t find ginger ale, you can use ginger ale. Do what you have to do.

The quality of the ginger beer makes a big difference in this cocktail, so I recommend finding your perfect brand. I most often use Bundaberg ginger beer because the balance between the spicy and the sweet is perfect.

But there are many other quality brands that taste good in this cocktail. We often use Rachel’s Ginger Beer from Seattle. I have to say that I don’t like the Old Jamaica Ginger Beer for this cocktail, especially the lighter version.

Motherwort has a light and refreshing ginger ale that would be a great alternative if you’re making a low-calorie, low-carb version of this drink.

Which vodka should you use for a Moscow mule?

Quality is also important when it comes to vodka. You want something sweet and light, combined with ginger beer and lime. If you want it to stay Russian, choose Russian Standard or Stoli. We also like Tito and Belvedere very much.

How to make a Moscow mule

Step one: Squeeze the lime into a cup and add the zest.

Step two: Put some ice in the cup. Pour in the vodka, blood orange juice and ginger ale.

Step three: Stir, garnish with fresh blood orange slices and enjoy.

See how easy it is to make a Moscow mule with orange blood? Now that you know how easy and delicious they are, you’ll drink them over and over again.

Even without the copper cup, it’s a chic drink! Don’t avoid it if you don’t have a cup. There are many other reasons to love him.
