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|
|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!
