Our Frozen Twist On A Classic Cocktail Recipe
You’ve got your standards like Pina Coladas and all flavors of frozen daiquiris, but you can really turn almost any of your favorite cocktail recipes into a frozen version.
Maybe not if you like sipping on a Manhattan or a Dirty Martini…but you know what I’m getting at. There are frozen mimosas and frozen tequila sunrise cocktails, even frozen Cosmopolitans, that famous drink from the 90’s we all loved – and still love.
So today we’re freezing the famous Moscow Mule cocktail, with a berry twist! We usually go strawberry picking in the summer so there are times in our kitchen when the strawberries are overflowing.
Besides just plain eating them or baking a few berry crisps, we start using them to make cocktails like this Frozen RumChata Strawberry Mule.
How Do I Make A Frozen Moscow Mule?
Well that’s the beauty of these warm weather drinks, my friends. Everything gets thrown in a blender and with a press of a button, you have a delicious, slushy, boozy frozen drink.
We started this twist on a moscow mule recipe with frozen strawberries, vodka, RumChata and a little bit of sugar. The amount of sugar you add will depend on how sweet your berries were to start with, so add a little, then taste and add more if needed.
What we love about this RumChata cocktail is that it’s a little different than all the creamy versions you usually see, this cocktail is almost pure strawberry with a vanilla background flavor that can only be added by using RumChata.
There’s also a decent amount of berry vodka in this drink recipe, so even though it looks tame don’t let it fool you. Because then when you’re finished blending up this drink…we top it off with ginger beer.
What Is Ginger Beer?
Ginger beer is a spicy, carbonated beverage made from fermenting ginger, sugar and water. Back in the old days, ginger beer was an alcoholic drink, but these days most ginger beers are a spicier version of a ginger ale soda. No alcohol.
BUT don’t let that stop you. There are lots of ginger beer brands out there that still follow the traditional methods and have alcohol in them, as anything named beer should, In my opinion.
So that’s the kind of ginger beer we used in this cocktail, the boozy kind.
You can definitely swap it out with regular ginger beer though, or even ginger ale or berry seltzer, but to keep it in the traditional Moscow Mule recipe we love the flavor that ginger beer adds.
