The Moscow Mule has been a bar staple for the past 75 years. It's a drink that is hard to mess up (ginger ale and vodka), but also one that is loaded with sugar and corn syrup. We like to take classics and find a way to make them better, whether that is through improved flavor or lower sugar, or both. This one never fails to please and has around 67 percent less sugar then when using a main-stream bottle of soda. Try it with either our Spicy Ginger or the Authentic, both are delicious!
