For the last few years, the Moscow mule has been having a bit of a moment. The drink was originally created in 1941 when an enterprising bartender who had ordered too much ginger beer decided to mix it with vodka – another drink that was hard to sell back then – and the result was a drink that he couldn’t keep in stock.

The mix of spicy ginger beer and vodka is one of the easiest and most refreshing cocktails you can make. But with a little more effort you can take this simple drink to the next level.

Via Karley Gomez of A Simple Pantry, here’s one of our favorite ways to the make the mule even more refreshing – with pineapple and cilantro. Just make sure to drink it out of its iconic copper mug.



  • 2 cups vodka
  • 3 cups pineapple Juice
  • 4 cups ginger beer
  • 3 cups chopped pineapple
  • 1 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 lime


  • 1 In a pitcher, add the chopped pineapple and cilantro.
  • 2 Cut the lime in half and squeeze it into the pitcher, then drop the lime rinds into the pitcher.
  • 3 Slowly stir in the pineapple juice, followed by the ginger beer and vodka.
  • 4 Pour over ice into copper mugs and enjoy!
