Author Notes: Moscow Mules are our “go-to” cocktails when we want something beyond wine or beer. Here, I give it a summer twist with the addition of raspberries and lime basil.

You may substitute 2 tablespoons of lime juice for the basil if you don't have any lime basil.

Serves: 3-4

  • 1/3 cup fresh red raspberries
  • 1/4 cup lime basil leaves
  • 3/4 cup vodka
  • 3 cups ginger ale
  1. With a mortar and pestle, grind the raspberries and lime basil together until the leaves are completely crushed.
  2. Transfer the raspberries to a large Mason jar or pitcher, and cover with the vodka and ginger ale.
  3. Cover and shake (or stir), then refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.
  4. Using a fine sieve or piece of cheesecloth, strain the liquid, pressing on the solids with a wooden spoon to squeeze out the juice. Discard the solids.
  5. Serve the Raspberry Mules over ice, garnished with more lime basil or a lime wedge.
