Traditionally served in a copper mug, and made from only three ingredients: vodka, ginger beer, and lime, a Moscow Mule makes for a perfect base to build additional layers of flavors and complexities in a drink.
Try this version, spruced up with passion fruit puree and bitters for an elegant twist on the traditional Moscow Mule. PS: Frozen fruit purees from companies like Boiron or Perfect Puree make a great substitute for fresh fruit or juices in a cocktail. They can be purchased online, or from restaurant supply retailers.
