I started doing research on the Moscow Mule a while ago. It is one of my favorite cocktails. In theory it's a straightforward cocktail. That's the thing though, it's not so easy, just like anything you can screw it up. Too much lime, too much vodka. Not knowing the difference between ginger beer and ginger ale.
I like variations, so with it being summer, creating something with one of the season's best fruits was a no-brainer. Enter the Peach Moscow Mule. The peach gives a nice bright flavor that blends well with the spice of the ginger beer. This is a great summer drink that is good to end the week. —Jacob K Thomas

In This Recipe
In a rocks glass add your sliced peaches, reserve two or three slices for garnish. To the glass add your lime juice and muddle until you have a nice-looking paste. You want it to be pretty much liquefied.
Add vodka, then ice to the glass, stir to combine this part of the drink. Pour ginger beer on top, give it another light stir to combine this portion of the drink. Add peaches to your drink on top for garnish. Serve immediately.
