Ingredients

  • 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice

  • 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice

  • 1 ounce fresh grapefruit juice

  • 1 ounce Triple Sec

  • 2 ounces ginger beer

  • 2 ounces Tito’s vodka

  • Ice

  • Mint for garnish

Tips

A great Moscow mule uses ginger beer, not ginger ale, which is much sweeter and lacks the spicy ginger kick of ginger beer.
