One of my favorite drinks ever is a simple Moscow mule. It's tangy, sweet, and delicious. Kick the classic up like 20 notches by making it with a homemade blueberry basil simple syrup! You won't be able to have to original ever again.


Sugar 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Water 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Blueberries 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Basil leaves 10 , torn
Vodka 2 Ounce
Lime slice 1
Ginger beer 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)



1.The first thing you want to do is make your simple syrup. In a small pan over medium heat add in the sugar, water, blueberries, and basil.

2.Let it come to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and let it cool completely.

3.In a cup filled with ice add in the vodka, cooled simple syrup, and squeeze of lime. Give it a good stir and add in the ginger beer to fill the cup.


4.Garnish with some basil leaves, and serve. Cheers!
