The 5 Best Moscow Mule Recipes to Make at Home

 

Jalapeno Moscow Mule

Jalapeno Moscow Mule

Not everyone can handle spicy drinks, but if you enjoy the adrenaline rush of seeking out heat, put some jalapenos in your Moscow Mule! Muddling jalapeno peppers in your Mule beverage adds a natural and fresh spicy flavor with a bit of sourness that melds well with the lime.

Furthermore, adding basil leaves enhances the spicy flavor with its savory, minty taste and slightly sweet notes. This drink leans more on the zesty and spicy side and is perfect for people who don’t like overly sweet drinks.
