Saturday Sips: The Mellow Mule


Happy weekend! It's time for our weekly attempt to play bartender and today we're serving up a modified version of the fan favorite Moscow Mule drink. I love me a cold, crisp Mule but sometimes momma needs something a little lighter and that's why we're not talking about the Moscow Mule, but the Mellow Mule instead.

Saturday Sips: Mellow Mule

I recently saw this tasty cocktail recipe pop up on my Pinterest homepage and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to give it a go. All of the flavor of a traditional Moscow Mule is there, but it's a bit lighter on the alcohol. Which means you can have two guilt-free. Ha! Here's what you'll need to make your Mellow Mule drink:

Mellow Mule cocktail


  • 3 ounces pinot grigio wine
  • 3 ounces ginger ale
  • 1 lime wedge
  • splash of ginger beer
  • ice

  1. Fill a glass with ice and then add in the wine and ginger ale. Stir GENTLY to combine.
  2. Give the glass a generous squeeze of lime.
  3. Add a splash of ginger beer and garnish with lime wheel.
  4. Enjoy!

This is a great margarita alternative too - I can vouch for the fact that it goes quite well with Mexican food. What doesn't really? I know I'm not the only one who could eat Mexican every day of the week right?! But I digress...

So, are you wondering what to do with the rest of that ginger beer you have left over? Try mixing it with lemonade for a shandy or for one of my favorite fall drinks, with whiskey and maple syrup in a Nor'Easter.

Cheers to you!
