Moscow Mule Float
THE PERFECT FAREWELL TO THE SEASON
Easy End-of-Summer Moscow Mule Float
The long, warm days of summer are slowly transitioning to the shorter, cooler days of fall, but here at MoscowMule.com we’re not ready to send off the season just yet. We’re all about celebrating pool, beach and, let’s face it, cocktail season in its full glory (even mid-September) and what better way to do so than with an Easy End-of-Summer Moscow Mule Float?
This tasty, refreshing recipe takes a classic Moscow Mule and turns it into a fun, festive dessert. It’s the perfect way to hold on to those last few days of higher temperatures and all the good times you’ve had during the carefree months of summer.
It’s the perfect treat to kick off the weekend or whip up during a Sunday afternoon watching football. It also tastes delicious without the vodka if you’re looking for a tasty, cold beverage without the kick. No matter which way you enjoy it, we guarantee this float will become a new favorite go-to even when the weather isn’t breaking 70 degrees.
Mastering this Easy End-of-Summer Moscow Mule Float requires just three ingredients — vodka, lime sorbet and ginger beer — and of course a 100% authentic copper mug to keep your drink nice and frosty. In some ways, it’s even easier to make than a traditional Moscow Mule since the sorbet provides the lime, the sweetness AND the “chill” factor you would otherwise only accomplish with limes, simple syrup and ice.
Simply fill your copper mug with your favorite lime sorbet, spike it with your favorite vodka, top it with any number of the zesty ginger beer brands on the market today, garnish with some fresh mint and lime (if you’re feeling fancy) and you have yourself an Easy End-of-Summer Moscow Mule Float.
Get the recipe for the Easy End-of-Summer Moscow Mule Float below, and don’t forget, to keep your float as frosty as possible, serve it in a 100% original copper mug to savor sweet summer for as long as we can!
