Can you believe it’s already Labor Day weekend? With summer coming to a close and school lingering just around the corner, let’s make the most of this long weekend, shall we?
I can’t think of a better way to pay homage to the sweet heat of summer than with good people, tasty food and a fun, fruity drink! So, grab your friends, family and/or neighbors, fire up the grill and follow our easy to follow recipe below to mix yourself up a tasty Watermelon Mint Moscow Mule.
You don’t need a lot to make this recipe great which we love. After all, less time mixing means more time mingling. So let’s gather our ingredients and get started!
Ingredients (Per Glass):
- 4-5 chunks of fresh, seedless watermelon
- 2-3 fresh mint leaves
- Juice from half of a lime
- 1/2 tablespoon sugar
- 1 cup ice cubes
- 1 shot vodka*
- 1 cup ginger beer*
- Fresh watermelon, lime wedge and mint for skewers/garnish
- *Omit the vodka and swap out the ginger beer for ginger ale to create as a mocktail.
Begin by muddling the watermelon, sugar and mint in the bottom of a Moscow Mule glass, then add in the vodka and lime juice. Next, add in the ice cubes and top the liquid mixture off with a can or bottle of ginger beer. Give it a good stir and garnish it with a skewer full of watermelon, lime wedges and mint.
Voila! This pretty little drink is now complete and ready for drinking! Cheers to a long weekend, friends!
