This blackberry Moscow mule is a sweet variation of the classic Moscow mule recipe. Blackberry jam adds a delicious sweetness to this easy cocktail!
I have been a fan of the traditional Moscow mule for a long time.
I love the fizz of the spicy ginger beer and the sour taste of the lime juice. I love how you can substitute the vodka with your favorite bourbon or give it a twist with fresh fruit.
I have made many versions of this classic cocktail.
Blackberry Moscow Mule
Today’s cocktail is a riff on the Moscow mule with the sweet addition of blackberry jam. It is great for Mother’s Day, as a signature cocktail, or just because you want to put a delicious twist on your favorite cocktail in an easy and exciting way.
This delicious cocktail is the perfect way to combine that blackberry flavor with a traditional Moscow mule. If you’re looking for the best blackberry Moscow mule recipes, this is the one because you don’t have to do any muddling.
Jam cocktails are my new favorite drink to make. When you add jam to a cocktail, you don’t have to use simple syrup to sweeten your drinks. The fruity sweetness of jam is more than enough, and you can change up the flavor of a drink so easily!
I have made a jam cocktail before – my strawberry mint jam cocktail has layers of flavor. And it is the recipe inspiration for this Moscow mule variation.
