Shake up happy hour with Grapefruit Moscow Mules! Fresh grapefruit juice, ginger beer, and vodka are the stars in this delicious cocktail.
It's Friday! So, let's have a drink. Friday is a day to celebrate and what better way than with a fun little cocktail? Especially when that cocktail is a Grapefruit Moscow Mule. So refreshing!
While I typically stick to wine or beer when I go out, if I'm going to order a cocktail it's likely going to be one of two things: an Old Fashioned or a Moscow Mule. Typically an Old Fashioned in the winter or a Moscow Mule in the warmer months. It just seems fitting to me.
How-EVER, with all of the fresh citrus right now, the idea for Grapefruit Moscow Mules popped in my head and wouldn't get out until I brought it to life. It just so happened that my thoughtful husband bought me copper mugs for Christmas so I could make authentic Moscow Mules. What a guy!
These turned out so good and were way easier than I anticipated. A Moscow Mule is typically a combination of vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice. So, all I did was swap grapefruit juice in place of the lime juice and voila! We have Grapefruit Moscow Mules.
Is it happy hour yet?!
Note: there is 1.5 ounces in a shot glass.
