Cherry Rum Mule

Moscow Mule Monday!

I am totally making that a thing now with this delicious cherry rum mule and all the other delicious mule inspired recipes I have.

Since it’s just about cherry season I figured it was only fair to start making cherry flavored and inspired cocktails. This cocktails is equally delicious as it is beautiful.

Cherry Rum Mule

For this recipe you’ll need some fresh cherries – any variety will do – some white rum, lime juice, and ginger beer. Ginger beer is what makes this recipe what it is.

If you cannot find ginger beer in your grocery store, you can use ginger ale but the flavor profile will be slightly different. Ginger ale is more sweet and ginger beer has more of a tang and forward ginger flavor.

Start by adding your cherries and lime juice to the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Muddle fully to release all the cherry juice with a drink muddler or the end of a wooden spoon.

Add the white rum and fill the shaker 1/2 way with fresh ice. Cover and shake vigorously for 30 seconds to fully incorporate the drink.

Strain into a copper mule cup or rocks glass filled with fresh ice and top with about 3-4 ounces of ginger beer. If you prefer no chunks of cherry at all, you can double strain to get more of them out but I’m not opposed to a few flecks of cherry floating around my drink.

Then garnish with a fresh lime wheel and cherry and your set to serve.

This drink is so light and refreshing and the color is gorgeous for the upcoming summer days. Enjoy!
