What makes this cocktail blue? It's curaçao, a blue liqueur made from citrus peels! Its tangy flavour is the perfect compliment to the traditional Moscow Mule. What makes this cocktail blue?

FAQ's

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute Ginger Beer with another ingredient in the Mermaid Mule?

Yes, if you can't find ginger beer, you can substitute it with ginger ale for a milder ginger flavor. Keep in mind that ginger ale is sweeter and less spicy, so the overall taste of your Mermaid Mule might slightly change.

GARNISHING_TIPS

What are some garnishing tips for the Mermaid Mule?

A popular garnish for the Mermaid Mule is a slice of lime or a lime wedge to accentuate the citrus notes. You can also add a sprig of mint for freshness or edible blue flowers for a magical, mermaid-themed presentation.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What's the best way to serve a Mermaid Mule for an impressive presentation?

Serve the Mermaid Mule in a clear whisky glass to showcase its vibrant blue color. Adding crushed ice not only chills the drink but also adds to the visual appeal. Consider using a copper mug for a traditional mule presentation with a unique twist.

NON_ALCOHOLIC_VARIATIONS

Is there a non-alcoholic version of the Mermaid Mule?

Yes, to make a non-alcoholic version of the Mermaid Mule, replace the vodka with non-alcoholic spirit or more ginger beer, and use a non-alcoholic blue curaçao syrup. This keeps the signature blue color and ginger-lime flavors intact.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content of the Mermaid Mule compare to a classic Moscow Mule?

A classic Moscow Mule typically has an alcohol content of about 11% to 15% depending on the recipe, which is lower than the Mermaid Mule's 21.11%. The Mermaid Mule has a higher alcohol content due to the addition of blue curaçao alongside vodka.
