Skinny Moscow Mule

I think a lot of people don’t put enough thought into the amount of sugar a cocktail can have.  A good Moscow Mule, or our Mexico City Mule is one of my favorite quick and refreshing cocktails, but have you ever seen the amount of sugar in a ginger beer?  That got us thinking about how we can cut out the sugar but still have a refreshingly spicy cocktail, most specifically in a mule mug!  We were playing with our ginger spice honey simple syrup recipe already and had an epiphany…what about using the ginger honey syrup to sweeten a sparkling water (with vodka and lime juice, of course!)?  We love this cocktail so much that we put the recipe right on our bottle label so you can easily make it at home.  We hope you love it as much as we do, it’s become a staple in our house and it’s an easy drink to pour for friends at a last minute gathering.  Enjoy!
