Skinny Moscow Mule Recipe
- 2-3 oz vodka
- 6-8 oz lime seltzer water
- 1 Tbsp lime juice
- 3 Tbsp Ginger Rosemary Simple Syrup
- Simple Syrup:
- ½ c sugar
- ½ cup water
- 1 sprig of rosemary
- ¼ tsp ginger ( I used ginger in a squeeze bottle, you can sub for ½ tsp fresh )
- Garnish with lime and rosemary
- In a small sauce pan, combine sugar and water. Heat on medium heat until the sugar has completely dissolved.
- Take off the heat and pour simple syrup into a glass jar.
- Add ginger and rosemary to the jar and cover with the lid. This will help the ginger and rosemary flavors infuse.
- Infuse for at least 1 hour. Strain the syrup to get the ginger and rosemary pieces out.
- Store your simple syrup in the fridge. It will keep for 1-2 weeks.
- Combine vodka, soda, lime juice, and syrup in a copper mug. Stir and garnish with lime and rosemary.
