Star-Spangled (Moscow) Mule

This past weekend I celebrated Independence Day with my family back in St. Marys. My dad and his wife hosted their annual Fourth-of-July party, an event I always look forward to. Every year I make my fabulous corn dip recipe and a ginormous red velvet and berry trifle. Both are completely devoured, and I return home happily with empty pans.

Although I didn’t take it to the party, recently I was inspired by a brand collaboration to craft this Star-Spangled Mule cocktail recipe. Red, white, and beautiful!

As I mentioned above, it’s a Moscow Mule (which is traditionally vodka, ginger beer, and lime) but with added flavor thanks to all the summer berries.

Muddling some blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and raspberries is a quick way to make this cocktail extra special, flavorful, and colorful. The berry flavor is the perfect touch for summer refreshment.

To take this cocktail over the top, I hunted down cute ideas for garnishing it.

You don’t need special mugs to serve this cocktail (A Collins glass or rocks glass will work fine.), but I couldn’t resist these silver mugs. To add more sparkle, I skewered fruit onto these foil “fireworks” skewers. I created the watermelon stars using star cookie cutters.

It’s all in the details, isn’t it?

And with that finishing touch, my Star-Spangled Mules were complete. What a fun, tasty, and unique way to celebrate the Fourth of July. If you give them a try, let me know what you think.

Cheers!
