For the Ginger and Mint Syrup:

  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
  • 2-3 mint leaves fresh or frozen
  • lime juice

For the Moscow Mule:

  • 150 ml ginger ale diet
  • 30 ml vodka OPTIONAL
  • ice to fill the glass
  • mint leaves and lime wedge to garnish



  • In a mortar, add the mint, brown sugar and ginger and, using the pestle, crush for 30-45 seconds, until all the ingredients are crushed and well mixed.
  • Take a wedge of the lime (about ⅛) and squeeze its juice in the mortar; mix all the ingredients togeher and the syrup is ready.


  • In your glass of choice, add the squeezed slice of lime and top the glass with ice cubes.
  • Add the ginger and mint syrup to the glass with ice.
  • (OPTIONAL) If using, add the shot of vodka to the glass.
  • Fill the glass with ginger ale and allow it to settle; once the foam has gone, give the drink a quick stir.
  • Garnish with a lime wedge and mint leaves as preferred and enjoy!



  • If you don't have light brown sugar, you can use either granulated white sugar or dark brown sugar. For more brown sugar substitute options, refer to the following article.
  • I like to prepare the virgin version of this drink throughout the year; however, if using vodka, I'd recommend using a premium one, such as Grey Goose.
