Limoncello Moscow Mules are a fun twist on the classic mule. Substitute fresh lemons for limes, and add some limoncello. So refreshing for warm summer nights!
I love a good classic drink, but I also like to put a spin on it once in a while. So when I was out party supply shopping LAST SUMMER (yes, I’ve had it for awhile), I decided to pick up some Limoncello. If Giada likes it, I should too, right? But I left it sit because I couldn’t decide what to do with it.
Until right now!

Tips for making THE BEST Limoncello Moscow Mules at home.
- The vodka. Use a good quality vodka. We like Kettle One and Absolute. If you use a cheap version, the taste will suffer.
- The Ginger Beer. Again, use a good quality. We always get Fever Tree, and there IS a light version as well.
- The Limoncello. Don’t buy cheap!
- ALWAYS use fresh lemon juice. This is important.
- Fresh lemon wedges. Gotta make it pretty.
- Ice. I like to use our cocktail shaker for these to get the drinks nice and cold.
We love using our copper mugs for mules. However, I decided to go with a clear glass for variety this time.
During the summer, I try to get everything nice and cold (because hello HOT Texas summers). I measure everything out and place it in the refrigerator a couple of hours in advance.

A twist on the classic mule, these have that extra lemon kick!
- 3 oz. limoncello
- 3 oz. good quality vodka
- 1 oz. fresh lemon juice
- 4 oz. ginger beer - I use Fever-Tree
- plenty of ice
- lemon slices - for garnish
- simple syrup - optional
Fill glasses with plenty of ice. Garnish with lemon slices.
Add the limoncello, vodka, fresh lemon juice, and ice to a cocktail shaker. Shake shake shake. Pour into glasses. Add Ginger Beer to the top of drinks and stir. Enjoy!
- If you like a sweeter drink, make a simple syrup to add to drinks. Just combine equal parts sugar to water (start with one cup of each), and bring to boil in small saucepan. Cook until sugar is dissolved. Remove and cool in refrigerator well in advance.
- You can also prepare in advance by making sure everything is nice and cold. Sometimes I put the liquors and the lemon juice in the refrigerate pre-party time.
