Anyone else excited about the holiday season? As it gets colder outside, a cozy winter flavor we truly love is ginger. It gives us all the feels!
Ginger is a popular spice that is often used in cooking and drinks during the winter months. It has a warm, spicy flavor that can help to warm you up and add some heat to cold weather flavors. Ginger is also believed to have a number of health benefits that could include aiding in digestion, reducing inflammation, and may alleviate nausea and other digestive issues.
Some of our favorite winter dishes and beverages have the ginger flavor we know and love. One of our favorite mixed drinks is a delicious Moscow mule.
A Moscow mule is a cocktail typically consisting of vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice. It is very often served in a copper mug and garnished with a slice of lime. The origins of the Moscow mule are somewhat disputed, but it is generally thought to have been created in the 1940s in the United States. The cocktail became popular in the 1950s and 1960s and has experienced a resurgence in popularity in recent years.
With it becoming increasingly more common to see on a menu these days, many people have been enjoying switching up some of the flavors but making sure to keep the great gingery taste.
The copper mug is a traditional serving cup used a Moscow mule. Many people prefer copper mugs because the mugs are believed to enhance the flavor and refreshment of the cocktail, although any type of glass or mug can be used to serve a Moscow mule. Some people believe that the copper mug helps to keep the cocktail colder for longer. The copper mugs also add a decorative touch when enjoying the drink with friends and family. However, the use of a copper mug is not strictly necessary for making a Moscow mule and is largely a matter of personal preference.
Most Moscow mules include ginger beer, a carbonated beverage that is made with ginger, sugar, and water. Some ginger beers are made with alcohol, typically in the range of 4-6% alcohol by volume (ABV), while others are made without alcohol and are considered non-alcoholic. It is important to check the label or ask the manufacturer if you are unsure whether a particular brand of ginger beer contains alcohol. In the United States, ginger beers with an ABV of 0.5% or less are considered non-alcoholic and can be legally sold to minors. Ginger beers with a higher ABV are considered alcoholic and are subject to the same regulations as other alcoholic beverages.
For our new Moscow mule recipe, we want to make our favorite cocktail with a twist. One that uses our kombucha flavors rather than adding juice and ginger beer, to enjoy a great winter drink while staying cautious of our gut health.
