A fresh summer take on the classic Moscow Mule, these Pineapple Ginger Moscow Mules are a brisk, refreshing pineapple cocktail for your next summer party.
Pineapple Moscow Mule Recipe
While I love a classic cocktail recipe as much as the next person, there is something so fun about whipping up something new and exciting.
This Pineapple Moscow Mule recipe has so many fun dimensions of flavor – from the tangy, sweet pineapple to the brisk and spicy ginger, the tart cut of the lime, and the (optional) earthy citrus flavor of the cilantro. Vodka is the perfect choice for this cocktail because it really allows the other ingredients to fight it out for centre stage.
(For the record, pineapple and ginger are the clear winners, with the cilantro adding an unexpected citrus flavor into the mix.)
I’d omit the cilantro if entertaining, just because some people don’t enjoy it (there’s a genetic trait that makes it taste like soap to some), but you could always have it on hand to add to individual glasses.
