While a Moscow Mule is traditionally served with mint and lime, this version is full of summer flavor, with blackberry and basil leading the charge. The diet ginger beer is the perfect thing to take it up a notch.



1/4 cup blackberries

1 TB basil leaves, chiffonade or minced

½ lime

1.5 oz vodka

½ cup diet ginger beer

½ TB Truvia optional (add sweetener as needed. my berries were so sweet I didn’t need any!)

extra basil and lime wedge for garnish


Mix the berries, basil leaves, vodka, Stevia, and lime juice in the glass of your choice. Muddle the berries using a muddler tool. Top it off with ginger beer. Shake vigorously in cocktail shaker with ice and strain. Pour into a festive glass and garnish. Voila!
