I don’t like winter. I don’t like cold weather and I only like snow when I’m watching it from the window of my cozy kitchen OR when I’m watching a Hallmark movie. It’s pretty but I find that white sand and a Caribbean blue ocean are more to my liking.

Tropical cocktails don’t really seem appropriate for New Year’s Eve or  winter get-togethers but I get tired of the classics. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good, cozy Old Fashioned but it’s always seemed more like a book-quilt-crackling fire kind of drink.

I’ve been partial to Moscow Mules since I had my first one. I love ginger ale and ginger beer — the spicier the better! I make a lot of variations on them and this one is a lot of fun! It’s sweet but not too sweet and it has a nice sparkle to it. The peppermint syrup gives you that icy after-taste the same way a mint does. You could garnish this with fresh mint leaves or a slice of lime… or both.

Tips for Making This Low Carb Vodka Cocktail

This is a super easy cocktail but using this tips will ensure that the low carb Arctic Mule is at its best when you serve it.

  • Keep the vodka in the freezer to make it even icier
  • Most Mule cocktails are served in copper mugs — I don’t care for the feel of them so I use glass
  • The best Moscow Mules are made with the spiciest ginger beer available — you’ll need to try a few to see which you like best
  • You can make a punch with this low carb vodka cocktail recipe – just add the ginger beer in right before serving – Change the number of servings in the recipe below by clicking on the serving size and moving the lever up to your desired number of servings
