This Champagne Moscow Mule cocktail is definitely going to get the party going…and keep it going as long as the champagne keeps pouring!
I love a good moscow mule, especially when it’s served up in the traditional copper mugs. It almost doesn’t even taste the same unless it’s in a copper mug, right? It’s weird how that works.
So when I found these copper champagne glasses I knew exactly what I needed to make – my twist on a moscow mule, one with champagne…
There are a couple of thing we always seem to have in our liquor cabinet or refrigerator. Champagne, wine, vodka and whiskey or bourbon. Of course we have a full bar that’s always pretty stocked but those are the staples.
Having all the ingredients on hand made mixing up these champagne cocktails for taste testing a breeze. All I had to do was grab the vodka, run outside to clip some fresh mint and I was on my way.
This Champagne Moscow Mule follows a moscow mule recipe except instead of ginger beer I’m using champagne. So it’s the vodka, champagne, fresh lime and a splash of ginger liquor just to add that ginger flavor.
If you’re making these champagne cocktails for a party you can make a mixture of the vodka, lime juice and ginger liquor ahead of time to have it all ready to go.
Then just top off with champagne when your guests arrive, easy as that.
Buy whatever champagne or prosecco you like to drink for these Champagne Mules but I chose to get a dryer champagne (a brut) so it didn’t turn out to be a sweet cocktail.
But I’ll tell you, the combination of champagne with a good vodka like Kettle One and fresh lime – it’s a definitely a party in a glass.
So to answer your question – no, you don’t have to run out and buy these awesome looking champagne flutes, a regular champagne glass will do fine – but if you happen to come across some I say grab a bunch!
