While every bit as smooth and refreshing as the classic vodka cocktail that inspired it, this party-sized version of the Moscow Mule adds one upgrade: a subtle, cool, and inviting note of mint. The spicier your ginger beer, the more fire and bite your punch will have—so choose accordingly.

Ginger-Mint Simple Syrup:

Combine ¾ cup light brown sugar, ¾ cup water, ½ cup peeled and chopped fresh ginger, and 4 sprigs of fresh mint in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer and stir to dissolve sugar. Remove pan from heat and cool completely. Strain out the ginger and mint and refrigerate the syrup in a covered container for up to 2 weeks. Makes ¾ cup.
