So, what exactly is a Moscow Mule? I have an unabating fondness for Moscow Mules, and I just can’t resist savoring them or experimenting with variations. For a comprehensive guide to Moscow Mules, I recommend delving into my notes on the Original Moscow Mule recipe. In a nutshell, a Moscow Mule is a chilled beverage, typically served in a copper mug, comprising vodka, lime juice, and ginger beer.

Now, let’s delve into the Champagne Moscow Mule. To transform the classic Moscow Mule into a sublime champagne cocktail, I tweaked the flavors a bit and concocted this extraordinary fusion. With this cocktail, you can relish the effervescence of champagne in a fancy flute while savoring the essence of a Moscow Mule. It’s an impeccable fusion.

Ingredients for Champagne Moscow Mule

This champagne cocktail demands a tad more ingredients than my typical concoctions, but the exquisite taste justifies the extra effort.

  1. Lime juice: Opt for freshly squeezed, but bottled juice can suffice in a pinch.
  2. Simple syrup: I prefer making my own, as it’s a breeze, but store-bought is a convenient alternative.
  3. Vodka: Invest in a quality vodka, as subpar choices can mar the cocktail.
  4. Champagne: No need to splurge, but ensure it’s a brand you’d enjoy on its own.
  5. Ginger Ale: The added sweetness of ginger ale serves as the ideal substitute for ginger beer in this recipe.
