By this point, most people know about the Moscow Mule cocktail. At least here in Austin you can’t go to a restaurant or bar without seeing a version on the menu. If you aren’t familiar with it, it is basically vodka, ginger beer (a non alcoholic strong ginger ale), and lime served over ice in copper mugs. It is actually my husbands favorite drink! So needless to say we have tasted quite a few different versions over the last few years, so when Cost Plus World Market asked me to create a Moroccan inspired cocktail, I knew right away that I wanted to make. A Moroccan mule!
Traditional Moroccan flavors of mint and lemon were substituted for the lime to create a herb-y cocktail that paired well with vodka and strong peppery ginger flavor. And of course since this is a Moroccan Mule, I decided to forgo the traditional copper Moscow mule mugs for a something with a more Moroccan flair, and these gold accented Moroccan tea glasses were perfect!
To make your cocktails you will need the following from World Market:
- Tito’s Vodka (I love this vodka, especially since it is made here in Austin)
- Ginger Cordial (Strong ginger and lemon flavor)
- Torani Mojito Mint Syrup
- Moroccan Tea Glasses
- Fresh Lemons and Mint
- Lemon Soda Water
- Optional – Traditional Lemon Pickle for garnish
I have to say that I am more of a fan of this Moroccan take on the mule than the traditional. That hint of mint and lemon pair so well with the ginger. And this concentrated ginger cordial is so tasty!
