Valentine's Day Moscow Mule

No matter if I'm at corner bar, a fancy Italian restaurant, or hosting a dinner party–I am the girl that has a Moscow Mule in hand. I don't know why I didn't know about these years ago, but I think I am just making up for lost time!

Here is my little spin on the traditional Moscow Mule for V-Day (Let's call it 'Heather's Special Love Potion' *WINK WINK*) Enjoy!


  • 2 oz vodka (I prefer Titos)
  • 3oz ginger beer
  • 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Splash of cranberry juice (optional)
  • 4 ripe strawberries, halved
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • Valentine’s Day heart candy
  • fresh mint
  • ice (cubed or crushed)
  • copper mug


  1. Combine vodka, ginger beer, lime juice, cranbery juice, and ice in a cocktail shaker. And shake, shake, shake!
  2. Pour mixture into your copper mugs
  3. Garnish with sliced strawberries, fresh mint, heart candy and sprinkle with sugar
  4. Drink up!
