Ah, what can I say about the Moscow Mule. If you’ve never had one, you’ve probably seen them as they are usually served in a distinctive copper mug. And you know that drink is cold when you see all the condensation dripping down the outside. It just says refreshing with a capital R.!

Well, this one is a little different. Not only is it flavored with strawberries and kicked up with a bit of jalapeno pepper but it’s a slushie too. It’s just perfect for that end of the summer party or your Labor Day picnic.

The main ingredients in a Moscow mule are ginger beer, lime juice and vodka. Supposedly the drink came about around 1941 when Martin, the proud owner of recently acquired Smirnoff, wanted to interest Americans in drinking vodka. He was also an owner of the Cock ‘n’ Bull bar in L.A., along with his friend Morgan. Now Morgan had not only ordered too much ginger beer, which he couldn’t seem to get rid of, but had a basement full of copper mugs from his girlfriend’s company. Getting the gist of this story yet?

So the bartender, Wes Price, of the same Cock ‘n’ Bull, came up with a refreshing drink and called it the Moscow Mule. Nothing to do with Moscow but there you have it.

I think the first time I tried ginger beer was in a Dark & Stormy and it had a refreshing and little bit tangy taste. When I tasted it in a Moscow mule, along with the lime, it was on the tart side. I decided it needed a little sweetening up, hence my addition of strawberries and agave.

Since it’s still steaming hot here in Florida, a frozen or slushie drink was in order. Of course, that doesn’t mean we can’t add a little heat to our cocktails just to spice things up. (like our Shogun Assassin cocktail) And voila  – the Strawberry Jalapeno Moscow Mule Slushie was born.

Now that’s a mouthful, but it’s a refreshingly cool one. Just a word of warning, watch out for that brain freeze, while you’re quenching that thirst. Like your drink less tart, more sweet, a little more vodka, no problem. This cocktail is easy to adapt to suit anyone’s taste. Make it as sweet as you want by adding more agave or just pile in the strawberries. You can also add less ginger beer or more vodka, whatever floats your boat. And guess what? No copper mug required!
