Peach Moscow Mules
A peachy twist on a classic Moscow mule? Count me in! I love how summery this drink looks and tastes!
What is a Moscow Mule?
A traditional Moscow mule is a cocktail with ginger beer, vodka, and lime — served in a copper mug.
According to legend (and The New York Times), the Moscow Mule was born in the 1940s out of necessity.
John Martin aimed to boost Smirnoff vodka sales in America. Pub owner Jack Morgan struggled to sell his ginger beer. Another entrepreneur had excess copper mugs.
Their collaboration resulted in the iconic cocktail we know and love today.
Riding on that same wave of moxie, we’re shaking things up by throwing peaches into the mix. Here’s to the next chapter of the Moscow mule story!
This is an easy peach Moscow mule recipe. No muddling peaches. No simple syrup. Just sweet and refreshing peach vodka with ginger beer.
Ok, let’s mix up this refreshing cocktail.
Peach Moscow Mule Ingredients
Only two ingredients are completely necessary for peach mules: peach vodka and ginger beer.
You could always add fresh peach slices and lime slices for garnish. But it’s possible to keep this super simple 🙌
If you can easily access crushed ice, I’d use that over regular ice for this mule recipe.
Simple Steps for a Fizzy Delight
01) Fill a cup or copper mule mug with ice.
02) Pour the peach vodka.
03) Top the drink with ginger beer.
04) Garnish the mule with peach slices and lime wedges.
Peach Mule Variations
Peach Basil Moscow Mule
Muddle a little basil with the peach vodka, then craft the rest of your drink. Garnish with extra basil for a flourish!
Peach Mint Moscow Mule
Freshen up the flavor profile by muddling a little mint with the peach vodka. Finish off the rest of the peach mule recipe, and enjoy!
Extra Peachy Keen

Serving Peach Moscow Mules
Copper Mugs (obvi)
Moscow mules are traditionally served in a copper mug. While some believe these mugs enhance the flavor or keep the drink colder, the real reason we love them is simple — they add a fun touch to the experience!
Cocktail Garnish (to make things fancy)
Garnish your mules with fruit or herbs to elevate the vibe. Try peach slices, lime wedges, or mint. Or go all out and line a cocktail stick with blueberries or another fruit!
Bubbly Pitchers (share the love)
If you’re serving a crowd, this cocktail scales up easily. Combine the peach vodka and lime juice in a pitcher. Just before serving, top up with ginger beer to preserve the signature fizz of a Moscow mule.
Alternatively, keep bottles of ginger beer on hand for guests to top off their own drinks.
