This cocktail with pomegranate molasses is a refreshing twist on the classic Moscow Mule. A chilled minty pomegranate mule cocktail will heat up any gathering with its vibrant color and enticing flavor profile.
Fill a copper mug or serving glass of your choice with ice.
Place the mint leaves in the bottom of a cocktail shaker, lightly muddle the leaves with the end of a wooden spoon or a muddler if you have one – no need to mush or muddle them too much – just release the flavor – you’ll be able to smell the minty aroma.
Squeeze the lime and drop the wedge in the shaker.
Add the pomegranate molasses and vodka.
Fill the shaker with ice cubes, cover and shake vigorously.
Pour the liquid from the shaker over the ice-filled copper mug and then fill the mug to the top with the ginger beer.
For Mocktail: sub club soda for the vodka (it was really delish as a mocktail)
