Non Alcoholic Moscow Mule with Ginger Ale
This non-alcoholic version of Moscow Mule is light, refreshing, and totally sippable, made with ginger ale.
Servings: 1 glass
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
- ⅛ 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.
