Summer is coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy the last few weeks of warm weather before fall!
And what better way to celebrate the end of summer than with Strawberry Basil Mules?
Seriously though, nothing beats summer drinks. Especially when they feature fresh seasonal fruit.
This drink is a spin on the traditional Moscow Mule. It features muddled strawberries, ginger beer, fresh basil, and lime. It’s refreshing tasting, sweet, with a little zing - perfect for summer BBQs!
I made it with my favorite vodka, Smirnoff No. 21. It’s incredibly smooth, as a result of being filtered 10 times! It’s gluten free, made in the USA, and has been around since 1864. It’s not coincidence that Smirnoff is the world’s #1 vodka! Smirnoff vodka has top shelf quality and taste at an accessible price.
[FUN FACT] Smirnoff invented the original Moscow Mule in 1941.
I picked up a bottle of Smirnoff Vodka, along with the rest of the ingredients, including the copper mugs at my local grocery store. And while you’re there, make sure to pick up a Smirnoff Ice Party 12 Pack! It is perfect for BBQs and are a hassle free way for your guests to enjoy their favorite cocktail recipes. The Smirnoff Ice Party Pack includes 4 delicious flavors - Original, Screwdriver, Green Apple, and Peach Bellini.
