A take on the classic Moscow Mule, but utilising the delicious Cotswold Vodka giving it a clean crisp taste. Delicious and moreish. A take on the classic Moscow Mule, but utilising the delicious Cotswold Vodka giving it a clean crisp taste. Delicious and moreish.

FAQ's

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

How do you properly stir the Cotswold Mule to ensure the flavors blend well?

To stir the Cotswold Mule effectively, use a long spoon and gently mix the lime juice, vodka, and Angostura bitters in the highball glass filled with ice. Aim for a smooth circulation to chill the drink evenly without diluting it too much. Top it up with ginger beer last to maintain its fizz.

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute anything for ginger beer in a Cotswold Mule?

If ginger beer is not available, ginger ale can be a decent substitute, albeit with a slightly sweeter and less spicy flavor. For a similar spicy kick, consider adding a small amount of freshly grated ginger to the ginger ale.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve a Cotswold Mule?

The Cotswold Mule is best served in a highball glass over ice, garnished with a lime wheel or wedge for an added citrus aroma. Ensure the glass is chilled beforehand to keep the cocktail cold longer.

GARNISHING_TIPS

What garnishes work well with a Cotswold Mule to enhance its appearance and flavor?

A lime wedge or wheel is classically used to garnish a Cotswold Mule, adding a fresh citrus appeal. For a more decorative touch, a sprig of mint or a thin slice of ginger can also complement the cocktail's flavors and add to its visual appeal.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content in a Cotswold Mule compare to other classic cocktails?

With an alcohol content of 8%, the Cotswold Mule is relatively moderate in strength compared to cocktails like the Margarita or Martini, which often have higher alcohol contents. It offers a balanced option for those seeking a milder yet flavorful alcoholic beverage.
