Potential changes & improvements:

-If you want a sweeter Moscow Mule, try using ginger ale instead of ginger beer.
-For a spicier kick, add a dash of hot sauce or a slice of fresh ginger to the drink.
-Not a fan of vodka? Moscow Mules can also be made with gin, tequila, or rum.

Works Well With…

Moscow Mules are often served with appetizers or light snacks, such as pickles, olives, or cheese.

Common Mistakes:

-Using too much lime juice can make the drink too sour. Start with less and add more to taste.
-Not stirring the drink enough can result in an uneven distribution of vodka and lime juice. Be sure to give it a good stir before adding the ginger beer.
