This weekend I did a cocktail that people really loved at an event. It’s a variation on our normal Moscow Mule (by far our top-selling cocktail since we make our own ginger beer) that uses what I call “crime juice”, which is cranberry juice that’s been acidified to match the level of a lime.
I thought I’d share the recipe here so you can make your own.
2 oz. liquor of choice (I like dark rum best)
1 oz. crime juice
4 oz. ginger beer
For bonus points, serve that shit in a champagne glass, but you can throw it on the rocks Moscow Mule style.
For double points, make your own ginger beer, and for triple points carbonate the whole thing in a keg.
1 liter cranberry juice
20 grams citric acid
2o grams malic acid
