Low Carb Moscow Mules

Share this post and help spread the love!

Moscow Mules have become one of my absolute favorite cocktails aside from wine. The only problem with drinking when trying to maintain control of your figure: SUGAR!

Moscow Mules made “the right way” should be accompanied by a delicious bite of ginger followed by a hint of lime and smooth vodka finish.

Because I do not plan to stop enjoying libations anytime soon I decided to make some minor adjustments to my favorite cocktail. The result – a simply satisfying twist without losing the remarkable taste, but minus the additional sugar.

 

Low-Carb Moscow Mules

Ingredients:

2 oz. Tito’s Vodka (preferred)

8 slivers Fresh Ginger Root

½ Lime

Ice

4 oz. Club Soda (optional for fizz)

Chilled Copper Mug

 MOSCOW MULE

Prepare the cocktail by putting the copper mug in the freezer and begin slicing fresh ginger root minus the skin (8 slices should be a good amount per drink). Smash ginger root in cup with a spoon to release the ginger juice essence. Pour 2 oz. vodka in cup with the ginger and let sit for about 10 minutes.

 

Squeeze as much of the lime juice as you can into the cocktail mixture. Add ice cubes (I like about 3) and Club Soda. Stir and garnish with a lime wedge.
