It may sound silly to say, but I have been dreaming of making this drink recipe, having copper mugs, and taking this exact photo! Lucky for me, I found these beautiful mugs at the tag sale of a restaurant going out of business. (I’m sad for the restaurant, but happy to find these mugs.)

Every so often, before I changed my diet, I would enjoy an ice cold Moscow Mule. It’s an unusual but pleasant drink with robust flavors of ginger and lime against the backdrop of vodka. Obviously, that is not going to work on a healing diet! That’s OK. We can get the flavor without the inflammatory alcohol.

The one thing you should have

Whoever thought of serving these drinks in copper mugs (<- linked here) was a genius drink magician. They keep the drink ICY COLD. Besides that, I think they are just plain beautiful. I love the patina that mine have gotten over years of use in that restaurant. I wonder how many people enjoyed laughter and conversation over drinks in these very mugs…

It can be hard to avoid alcohol when times are stressful, and it seems the thing to do to have a drink. Having a fun, non-alcoholic drink alternative can help. You may have noticed that I am having fun with mocktails lately (see also Watermelon Limeade and Three Mocktails), and indeed they seem to be trending! Try swapping a mocktail for your evening glass of Chardonnay, and see if you sleep better and your inflammation subsides a bit.

I encourage you to play around with the ratio of ginger syrup to seltzer water. Find the combination that is just right for you. Enjoy!

As always, I’m wishing you love and healing!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 3 limes)
