Fresh raspberries are one of my favourite additions to cocktails. These gorgeous little red gems of fruit have an amazing balance between sweet and sour and make a really delicious addition to the classic Moscow mule.

Our Russian Raspberry Mule is a beautiful way to create a Spring version of this classic cocktail. Serve it up in a copper mug and let your garnish of mint and fresh berries steal the show. For an added kick, a little raspberry liqueur would certainly add a special something to this delicious drink.


  • 4 fresh raspberries
  • 2 fresh lime wedges
  • 15 ml lime juice
  • 3 bruised mint leaves
  • 50ml vodka
  • Ice
  • Ginger beer
  • Extra mint leaves and raspberries for garnish


In a cocktail shaker, add raspberries, lime wedges, lime juice, mint leaves and vodka and muddle together.

Strain this mixture into your copper mug, add ice and top with your favourite ginger beer. Stir.

Garnish with fresh raspberries and mint leaves.
