There's no better antidote to summer's stickiest days.

It’s no secret that summer is the season for frozen drinks. Warm weather, pool parties, and barbecues are all best-appreciated with a refreshing boozy beverage in hand. You’ve probably already heard about frosé and have a solid sangria recipe in your back pocket at all times, but if you haven’t tried the Moscow mule slushie, you’re seriously missing out.

Moscow mule slushies are incredibly easy to make—they require nothing more than all the ingredients you’d regularly use to make a Moscow mule with some extra ice and a quick whirl in your blender (read: no fancy slushie machine necessary). They’ve got a lot more kick and significantly less sugar than the frozen drinks you’ll find in a restaurant, too. And instead of being served in a dodgy fishbowl, Moscow mules come in classy copper cups that help keep your cocktail cold and make you look like a hero of a hostess.

Whether you’re poolside, lakeside, or just enjoying a moment on the patio, we think this drink will pair well with the task at hand.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup ginger beer
  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 5 cups ice
  • Fresh mint leaves and lime wedges, for garnish

Directions

  1. Add ingredients except for the garnishes to your blender jar, making sure the liquids go in first and ice is on top. Starting on low and gradually increasing the blender speed, process your ingredients until the ice cubes are evenly crushed but not liquefied.
  2. Divide mixture between two copper mugs and add a mint spring and lime wedge as garnish.

If you want to get adventurous, try adding fresh or frozen watermelon cubes or cucumber slices to your mule. Cheers!
