Why I love this strawberry mocktail
Ok. I have to admit something. I just had my first Moscow mule last month. I know. I’m a little late to the party with this seemingly trendy drink. But, you’ll have to give me a break. I spent the last year unable to imbibe, and I promise you, I do love ginger beer. In fact, I made a really good cocktail with it forever ago.
Anyway, my sister bought a case of it a few weeks ago, and thoughts of mocktails instantly popped into my head. That’s how the strawberry mocktail mule was born, and it’s oh-so-good. The lime and the ginger give it a nice bite/kick and the strawberry puree sweetens it up just enough, without overpowering the ginger.
How to make strawberry puree for drinks
I made a strawberry puree from a bag of frozen strawberries, and I put into a squeeze bottle. It’s a trick they used at a restaurant I worked at forever ago. It makes it really easy to “pour” and you don’t have to make a mess with spoons or lids or any of that no-fun stuff. The rest is really just a matter of pouring and stirring.
Note: this recipe is for 1 drink, but you should get enough for at least 6 with a small batch of puree.
How to make strawberry mocktail mules
