Blueberry Bush Mule by Kinsey Justa

 In Recipe

The harbinger cocktail of summer in Alaska uses fresh, young blueberries for a slightly bitter twist on a classic. Adapted from the Smirnoff’s original Moscow Mule.


1.5 oz Vodka
4 oz Ginger Beer
2 Lime Wedges
A handful of fresh blueberries
1 tsp raw sugar


In the bottom of a highball glass muddle whole blueberries and raw sugar together. Squeeze the juice of one lime wedge into the glass and pour in the vodka, stir. Cover mixture with ginger beer and finish generously with ice. Garnish the cocktail with the remaining lime wedge and a sprig of blueberry bush.
