The classic Moscow Mule was made famous in the 1940s at Hollywood’s Cock’n Bull Restaurant, having been dreamed up by cynical marketing suits who simply wanted to shift more ginger beer and vodka.
They’d created a grown-up drink that tasted like fizzy pop, and the cocktail helped vodka earn number one spirit status in the States. One of the strengths of vodka is it can deliver this hidden alcoholic heft to a mixed drink, and it’s never truer than when you use ginger beer.
But we prefer to taste the alcoholic ingredient in our drinks, and since Baller is made using 100% English wheat and is unfiltered, the spirit stands up to the ginger beer and crisp lime in a mule, so as well as a tasty beverage, you also know it’s a proper one.
Glass: highball or copper mule cup
25ml Baller Vodka
2 lime wedges
Fever Tree Ginger Beer
Pour the vodka into a highball glass over ice, squeeze 1 or two lime edges and drop int the glass, top with Fever Tree Ginger Beer.
Stir and garnish with a lime slice and sprig of mint.
