Frozen Peach Whiskey Mule

A classic Mosscow mule will always be a cocktail favorite but amping it up a bit and adding whiskey gives this classic cocktail an even bolder bite.

First it was frozen wine slushies and now it’s a frozen remix of the classic Moscow Mule. I can’t help but jump on the bandwagon of frozen drinks because it’s still just so hot outside. This particular cocktail, I can’t take full credit for. I owe a huge thanks to the very helpful and creative folks at The Kitchn.

First, let’s talk about how much I love the Kitchn. This site is one of my go to places for tips and tricks for my food inquiries. They really do answer most of my culinary questions. Not too long ago, the folks at The Kitchn wrote a cookbook that I found really useful. I went through that book really quickly marking everything I found helpful. Check it out if you haven’t already.

Recreating this refreshing beverage is really easy. All you'll need is whiskey, your favorite ginger beer, lime and of course fresh peaches.OK, back to the subject at hand. A frozen peach whiskey mule. Sounds good, right? So this is a fun, bold take on a Moscow mule, which consists of vodka, lime and ginger beer. This bolder version features, whiskey (the version on The Kitchn features bourbon), fresh peaches, lime and ginger beer. Same concept as a “regular” Moscow mule but frozen and with fresh fruit. Any fruit will do but peaches are currently in season and they are everywhere. I received a batch of peaches over the weekend and I’ve already used most of them to make a delicious peach cobbler.

There's nothing better than freesh peaches in the summer. Adding them to cocktails is even better.I’d imagine a frozen whiskey mule would be delicious with strawberries or raspberries too. Don’t get me wrong, the peaches were fantastic but if you’re looking for an alternative, any fresh berry would do too. A citrus fruit wouldn’t be so bad either if you’re into tangy cocktails. You may want to think about adding a simple syrup if you decide to use a citrus fruit. Ready to cool off and relax with a refreshing frozen beverage? Let’s make a drink.
