Green Tea Moscow Mule


  • Adjust the amount of ginger beer to taste to make the Moscow Mule more spicy or sweet.
  • The copper mug is traditional for a Moscow Mule as it keeps the drink colder longer, but any glass will work.

This Green Tea Moscow Mule offers a delightful twist on the classic cocktail, blending the antioxidant benefits of green tea with the spicy kick of ginger beer. It's an invigorating drink that's perfect for sipping on a hot day or serving at gatherings for a refreshing, sophisticated option.
