Blood Orange Moscow Mule
For a fun variation on the classic Moscow mule, try a blood orange Moscow mule! Ginger beer, lime, and vodka are mixed with blood orange juice and pomegranate in this tasty cocktail.
Servings 1 drink
- 1 lime wedge, cut a lime into 8 wedges
- 1 mint leaf
- 2 oz vodka
- 2 oz blood orange juice
- 1 oz pomegranate juice
- 4 oz ginger beer
- crushed ice
- lime wedge or blood orange slice, as garnishes
In a glass, muddle together the lime wedge and mint leaf, releasing the lime juice and crushing the leaf.
Add the vodka, blood orange juice, and pomegranate juice to the glass.
Pour in the ginger beer and give the drink a stir. Fill the glass the rest of the way with crushed ice. Garnish with a lime wedge and/or a blood orange slice if you wish.
- Blood oranges: Blood oranges are usually found in the winter and spring, though you may get lucky and find some in the summer. Look for heavy, firm fruit. You will need about 1 and 1/2 oranges for the drink.
- Standard orange juice: Using standard orange colored orange juice in the drink has the unfortunate effect of making it a drab, beige color.
