Hi, my name is Kristina Kuzmic from And today, I want to show you how to make a Moscow Mule without using ginger beer. So, what you want to do, is use a copper mug. That's what they're supposed to be served in, but copper mugs can be a little pricey. So, if you don't have one, just serve a Moscow Mule in a regular glass. I fill this with about three to four ice cubes. I'm going to take a lime and cut in half, I'm going to squeeze a whole half a lime in there. And then, I'm actually just going to throw the whole thing in. We're going to use one shot of vodka. And then, if you were making a traditional Moscow meal, what you would do is, fill the rest of this up with ginger beer. But if you don't have ginger beer, you can use ginger ale. Now, the the main difference between ginger beer and ginger ale, is the ginger beer is a lot stronger in that ginger flavor. So, if you're not using this, what I would do, after you pour your ginger ale in, just kind of fill it to the top. What I like to do to add that extra ginger flavor that ginger beer would have. Take a zester or grater and take some fresh ginger and just grate it in there. And that's going to add that kind of spiciness that ginger has, which I feel like ginger ale is missing. Just add as much as you like. Take a spoon, stir that all up, cheers, um, that's delicious. I'm Kristina Kuzmic, thank you so much for watching, have a great day.
