Make a Green Moscow Mule!
How can it be March already? That means that St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner! Since you know I love to make different Moscow Mule recipes, you KNOW I had to come up with a Green Moscow Mule! I’m not a fan of going out to pubs and drinking green beer. Instead, I’d much rather stay at home and sip on a delicious vodka cocktail. I’m going to pretend it’s healthy, well, as healthy as a cocktail can be.

You can do anything with a Moscow Mule! I love that you can take the best Moscow Mule recipe, your basic original Mule, and then switch out some ingredients to create a brand new recipe! This mule with green juice is great for people looking to be a little bit healthier. And equally as perfect for St. Patrick’s Day which is a funny dichotomy.
How to Make a Green Mule
- 1 1/2 oz. vodka
- 2 1/2 oz. green juice (use one that sounds good to you)
- 1 oz. ginger beer
- 1 oz. Rose’s Lime Juice
- 1/4 of a lime, juiced
Rose’s Lime Juice is my new favorite sweetener for cocktails! I love that it isn’t overly sweet and gives a nice limey tang. It’s not the same level of acidity as fresh lime, which is why I use a little bit of that too. Fresh lime in a Moscow Mule is a necessity!
Let’s talk about green juice for a minute. If I had noticed that this green juice had spirulina, I would have chosen a different one. I first tried spirulina when I was learning about adaptagens.
Spirulina is an organism that grows in fresh or saltwater. And I think it tastes awful! And I could totally pick it out in this juice blend. My friend Candace swears by it and drinks it in her beauty water daily. I tried that. And I just can’t do it!
There are so many green juice options out there. Long story short, choose one that you like.
- Add ice to a copper mug
- Add vodka, green juice, ginger beer, Rose’s Lime Juice, and fresh lime
- Give it a quick stir
- Serve with lime and herb garnish
It’s SO easy! You probably didn’t even know you needed a Green Moscow Mule recipe. But you do. Using the green juice is refreshing. It’s less sweet than you might be used to for a cocktail, but it has natural sugars from the fruits in the juice. OMG and fiber. See, it’s like drinking a salad. With a little bit of vodka.
Yes, it’s a bummer that you can’t see how green this cocktail is when hidden in a beautiful copper mug. But trust me! It’s so green! This might be the one time I would suggest serving a Moscow Mule in something other than this cup. But this one time only! What’s your favorite Moscow Mule recipe? This Green Moscow Mule is quickly becoming a favorite of mine! The fresh herbs and lime juice, that I garnished the drink with, smell so great as you take a sip! You could muddle some herbs into the green juice, before adding ice and the rest of the ingredients, if that sounds good to you. It totally does to me!
